According to Gartner, the immediate drive to cloud and cost optimisation will be crucial and Chief Information Officers must take a “differentiated approach to cloud comping”.
Citadel Technology can help your business to thrive in the cloud. Using modern technology means that your business will reduce costs and complexity of hardware and software whilst increasing flexibility and the ability to scale.
Businesses are trying to cut the cost of reducing expenses and free up budgets, providing a scalable environment and increasing business agility with application innovation and improved security. Traditional servers in clients’ office using on premise hardware and software needs to be updated and patched which is expensive to keep updated and to manage.
On premise software can be difficult for users to access from remote working locations and can cause frustration often wasting hours of work time looking for information or not being able to work.
What’s needed is a deployment of a hosted desktop which is less expensive to run than PCs because it aids in the effective utilisation of centralised computing capacity. In addition, with respect to operating expenditure (OPEX), hosted desktops help to achieve almost 90% saving in energy consumption and there are additional savings in administration costs.
The hosted desktop environment eliminates the need to manage thousands of individual systems and enables centralised management of resources in enterprise data centres or server rooms.
Patches and software updates in this cloud environment can be carried out in a simplified and centralised way and this will also help with faster problem resolving capabilities for the IT team.

Additionally, hosted desktop deployments can be configured so that data can’t be downloaded to end user devices, repurposed PCs can be converted into thin clients through high-quality software to protect them from viruses and malware and it is easier to configure firewall policies and antivirus agents on one master image avoiding the need to maintain antivirus for numerous systems.
Furthermore, we use solutions like Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 to ensure we offer a seamless migration to the cloud or a hybrid cloud infrastructure. Trust us to make your transition to the cloud a successful one.
“Citadel offered us a platform for our online CRM hosting, in which it has been a testament to the reliability of the platform as we have only needed to long one support request since migrating to Citadel. That support request involved restoring a backup to recover data, which a user of one of our customers had accidentally deleted. This was handled quickly and efficiently, much to the relief of the user in question!”

“We’d heard about ‘the cloud’ and ‘hosted’ but never considered it to be an option for us. But after learning about the benefits of a secure digital workspace, requiring no internal hardware infrastructure nor the cost and resources to maintain an on-premise server, the choice to move to cloud seemed the right decision.”

“I would just like to say how pleasant and polite Ben is whenever I have a problem. I am near retirement age and anything technical is quite daunting for me. He is always reassuring and helpful I think compliment should be said when due.”
