IRVINE, CALIFORNIA – February 9, 2017 – Zumasys, a leading provider of cloud computing solutions for business-critical applications and customized ERP systems, announced today that it was recognized as runner-up for Desktop Partner of the Year at Citrix Summit 2017. This is the second consecutive year that Zumasys was recognized in this fast-growth category. Citrix Summit highlights outstanding contributions by Citrix partners in the Americas over the past year, with partners recognized by segment, product, and area.
“We are excited to have Zumasys as one of our fastest-growing cloud service providers,” says Mick Miralis, Director of Cloud Solution Sales, Citrix Service Providers—Americas. “Zumasys’ extensive solution portfolio coupled with their application-rich desktop-as-a-service offering truly sets them apart in the marketplace. Citrix looks forward to working closely with the Zumasys team and further accelerating their growth in the market.”
Companies are increasingly relying on a globally distributed, mobile workforce who need to access their data and applications from a variety of devices. Using a browser-based Citrix virtual interface, Zumasys Desktop as a Service (DaaS) enables users to access their apps from anywhere using their choice of PC, thin client, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
“Today, the Hosted Desktop market is growing at nearly 30% per year. In less than two years, we’ve grown our platform to more than 2000 users,” says Zumasys President Paul Giobbi. “Citrix’s new multi-tenanted XenDesktop architecture and rental licensing program allow us to now bring the power of Citrix to companies of all sizes. Our desktop-as-a-service platform gives us the flexibility, the performance, and the cost-competitiveness to provide customers with flexible access—anywhere, anytime, on any device—for an affordable per-user fee.”
With no physical hardware to manage, companies can reduce capital and management expenditures while unifying desktop management and protection from a centrally controlled interface. Customers pay per user per month, significantly reducing hardware and licensing costs. Upgrades are automatic. And with 24/7 support from Zumasys, customers never have to worry about losing access to their data and applications.
“Zumasys’ DaaS platform sets us apart from most public cloud providers,” explains Giobbi. “Few companies have the expertise to do it right. Our engineers have been at the forefront of this technology for over 16 years. We’ve taken the time to build an enterprise-grade, multi-tenanted hosted desktop platform built on Citrix. To be recognized by Citrix two years in a row is an honor.”
