Workspace as a Service

Workspace as a Service (WaaS) powered by Citrix, is a type of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Virtual Apps, where users can access business applications and corporate data from anywhere, anytime using any device. VDI hosts desktop operating systems on virtual machines that are residing on Oman Data Park (ODP) servers enabling the data to be accessed from the resources of ODP servers instead of the login device. The service enables IT administrators to manage all their enterprise applications, desktops and data from a single pane, providing them various access controls to build a secure digital perimeter around the user when accessing enterprise content from any device. This facilitates a digital workspace that automatically adapts to your business needs to collaborate and work safely and productively.

Managed completely by ODP’s team of experts and hosted securely at our Tier 3 data centers in Oman, the service can be accessed with an internet connection through any device on any operating system (Eg; Windows, iOS or Android) to securely access and continue your work from any location. Workspace as a service is also able to provision either Windows or Linux desktops in just a few minutes and enable thousands of desktops for your workers across Oman or anywhere in the world. Furthermore, the service also enables a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) work environment to reduce infrastructure costs for your business.

Oman data Park offers Workspace as a Service hosted as a shared or private cloud environment or even hosted at your datacenter. Similarly, you can also migrate existing virtual desktops and virtual apps to our servers thus relying on Oman Data Park’s professional service and seamless connectivity without any interruptions.
