Hosted desktop using Citrix on Azure
Citrix on Azure is Redcentric’s next generation solution for delivering hosted desktops or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). With virtual workstations, data storage, operating systems and applications hosted in the Azure cloud, you can transform traditional PC environments while securing efficiency gains, financial savings and operational flexibility.
Redcentric uses a combination of Citrix Cloud and Citrix resources running on Azure to create the optimum deployment for your organisation. We understand that each department is different so whether you are need to invest in a business continuity solution or undertake a Windows 10 roll out, we can tailor the solution accordingly.
The service scales easily from a handful to thousands of users, with hosted desktop access from any device, whether it be the user’s computer, a mobile devices or shared tablet. Remote access can be secured via a network connection that is encrypted and protected by two-factor authentication, including software and smart phone tokens to secure login.
We manage the underlying Azure Virtual Machine environment as well as the Citrix workloads, freeing up your internal IT resources for more added-value activity. We have also worked closely with specialist application partners to enhance the user experience of Office 365, and can supply and support your Office 365 subscriptions for an end-to-end managed service.
