Berlin, Oct. 6

Wipro Technologies, the global consulting, system integration and outsourcing business of Wipro Ltd (NYSE:WIT) , and Citrix (NASDAQ:CTXS) Systems today announced an initiative with Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) to deliver an integrated Wipro Desktop as a Service (Wipro DaaS) solution that uses the desktop virtualisation technologies of Citrix and Microsoft.

The announcement was made at Citrix Synergy conference on virtualisation, networking and cloud computing in Berlin. This service is designed to meet the needs of specific industries including education, manufacturing, banking and healthcare. It is currently available on beta stage, and will be generally available in the first quarter of 2011.

Desktop solution

The Wipro DaaS solution is based on Citrix XenDesktop solution and leverages Citrix FlexCast delivery technology to provide multiple types of virtual desktops – hosted or local, physical or virtual – each specifically tailored to meet the performance, security and flexibility requirements of each individual user.

The solution promises users, a “high definition experience on any device”, including PCs, Macs, thin clients, tablets and smartphones. The solution incorporates the Microsoft VDI Premium Suite, which includes Microsoft VDI infrastructure and management software so customers can virtualise, manage, stream and remotely display applications and deliver desktops remotely.

Wipro DaaS offers organisations virtual desktops and applications as a service. The solution will be hosted at Wipro's data centres or at a customer's location. It claims to replace complex, custom implementation projects with a plug-and-play, preconfigured delivery model that is based on the most common user requirements to improve time-to-market, performance and scalability of virtual desktops.
“Customers are rapidly adopting desktop virtualisation to enable users to get access to their desktop, apps and documents anywhere, using any device,” said Mr Sumit Dhawan, Vice-President, XenDesktop Product Marketing. “The Wipro DaaS service with Citrix XenDesktop and Microsoft offers a low-cost, modular and scalable service model, which can be easily adopted by organisations. This new service broadly addresses the needs of different users via multiple types of virtual desktops, such as session-based shared desktops for task workers, VDI desktops for power users, or streamed desktops for lab environments.”
