Our all-in-one virtual desktop is a bespoke build, designed with a collaboration of technologies, to enable your business to just work!
Even though there are a lot of remote desktop providers and cloud specialists out there, we like to do things differently. We go the extra mile for our clients and provide a platform were we focus on your IT issues for you, all for a simple monthly fee which includes all licensing.
We work with businesses large and small and offer a great level of expertise and service, in which we can fully take care of your IT, or empower your IT managers role.
With a sophisticated and intuitive desktop in the cloud, we can help support your company by providing your business with remote access to work securely, with consistency and control.
With green cloud computing from Citadel Technology, we help to save energy and reduce operational costs across the business. Recent studies shows that businesses can reduce their carbon footprint and save money with long-term flexible working. On average, UK businesses could save 21 tonnes of CO2 per year, £102,000 in energy, travel-related costs and 3,323 hours on commuting and business travel.
By switching to remote access with a virtual desktop, you can help make a positive change whilst making some extra savings!

Does data still belong to me if it is in the cloud?
Absolutely! Even though we store business data in our data centres, you have control over your information. Be careful with some cloud providers though as they have a clause which states they have ultimate control over your data.
Why do I need a virtual desktop if my applications are already in the cloud?
If you access multiple applications on the cloud outside of the Citadel Bubble, you are increasing the risk of cyber attacks. Having your data stored in one location protected by additional security measures reduces the risk of data loss.
Why is it safer to have my data stored in the cloud rather than on-site?
If you have an on-site server, you run the risk of technical issues, stolen data and physical damage to your local server. By storing your data in the cloud, it is protected by extensive security measures and 24/7 monitoring.
We are a Manchester-based cloud solution provider, founded in 2017 by Andy Hughes and Tony Poole. Prior to becoming a cloud-based solution provider, we provided equipment and hardware upgrades as a sister company to Synergy Technology since 2005.
We are proud to offer a people-first approach to our customers, taking the burden of technology off your shoulders and helping you and your business to save valuable time, money and resources.
“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.”
