BlueFire, a leading managed and cloud hosting service provider in Australia, wanted to expand its hosted desktop business and lower the costs associated with hosting and managing the service. It used the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system as the foundation for BlueFire Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and added other Microsoft and Citrix virtualization technologies to create a hosted desktop offering that meets a range of customer needs. Further, it uses Microsoft System Center data center solutions to automate the delivery and management of its standard operating environment, which reduces management costs. Customers get anywhere, any-device, always-available access to their applications, along with lower costs and fewer worries.
