Mahindra Satyam, a leading global consulting and IT services provider, today at Hyderabad, announced the launch of Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) to lessen the burden of planning, owning and maintaining costly IT infrastructure. Mahindra’s WaaS is leveraging technology from Citrix Systems, Microsoft and Liquidware Labs. With this the company achieves the objective of taking virtualization in the enterprise segment to the next level. WaaS is a hosted managed new world workspace solution that offers a unique opportunity for customers to embark on the virtual desktop computing journey.
The hosted managed workspace solution allows virtual desktop computing by allowing customers the flexibility of dedicated, pooled or shared virtual desktops or applications that can be accessed any time, from anywhere, using any device. It has been developed through a combination of Citrix XenDesktop, Windows Server Hyper-V, application-level virtualization enabled by Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V), and management provided by Microsoft System.
The company said WaaS could be provided as a hosted on-premise solution within the customer data center or on a dedicated infrastructure at a Mahindra Satyam-hosted data center. Mahindra Satyam also offers a flexible financial model, including per desktop, usage-based pricing to alleviate the financial burden on the customer. At the BSE, Satyam Computer Services shares are being traded at Rs.65, up by 2.85 percent from the previous close.
