Wipro, Citrix and Microsoft just announced a new joint Desktops as a Service solution at Citrix Synergy Berlin. This new solution is based on Citrix XenDesktop and Microsoft infrastructure technologies, including Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, Microsoft VDI Premium Suite, and Microsoft System Center management.

One of the most interesting aspects of this new Daas offering is the flexibility and simplicity it provides. The solution can be hosted at either Wipro’s datacenters or at a customer’s location. It replaces complex, custom implementation projects with a plug-and-play, preconfigured delivery model that is based on the most common user requirements in order to improve time to market, performance and scalability of virtual desktops. Wipro expects customers will realize these benefits as a hosted service with minimal upfront capital costs and no deployment delays.

Harish Krishnan, General Manager, end user transformation solutions with Wipro, spoke briefly about this new joint offering in an interview with the CitrixTV team at Citrix Synergy Berlin.

The announcement includes insights from leaders at all three companies – David McCann, General Manager of Server and Cloud Platform Marketing at Microsoft, Sumit Dhawan, Vice President, Citrix XenDesktop Product Marketing, and Deepak Jain, Senior Vice President, Global Head Technology Infrastructure Services at Wipro.
