Virtualisation Solutions from Citrix and Blue Chip

When you need centralised remote access to your company data and applications no matter where you are in the world, Desktop as a Service from Blue Chip and virtualisation specialists Citrix offers the ideal solution.

While the demand for employees to work anywhere, at any time and on any device is on the rise, there is no need to compromise between providing a straightforward, high-quality user experience and keeping company data safe and secure. Blue Chip’s Desktop as a Service (DaaS) provision, powered by Citrix, offers a great end user experience whilst working on any device over any connection - even on low bandwidth/high latency links.

DaaS is offered in three tiers – Bronze, Silver and Gold - via Citrix's industry-leading software XenApp. This high performance, flexible desktop can be accessed on a pay-as-you-go basis, leveraging Blue Chip's extensive investment in our cutting-edge Infrastructure as a Service platform. This technology can also be implemented on a traditional, on-premise infrastructure.

An added benefit is the ability to circumnavigate Microsoft’s licensing policies which forbid the user of Office 365 on shared virtualisation platforms. The full Microsoft Office Suite is included with our Silver and Gold tiers, giving user flexibility to access services offline where suitable. Best of all, Desktop as a Service from Blue Chip comes with a host of additional benefits thanks to our longstanding Gold Solution Partnership and Citrix Service Provider accreditations.
