RapidScale, a channel-focused provider of managed cloud services throughout the United States, now provides, manages and delivers a Citrix ShareFile solution. After analyzing several solutions, RapidScale ultimately decided on this “robust application” to enable “secured and easy-to-manage” file sharing for users, specifically in the SMB space.
“ShareFile was the most mature small to medium business file-sharing system that we had seen, and it keeps maturing – Citrix is ahead of the game,” said Randy Jeter, CEO of RapidScale. “When we look at who’s going to simplify the delivery of applications, we believe Citrix is going to have a big play in that long term. We’re winning because our customers are analyzing what we recommend, and telling us that choosing ShareFile was a great decision.”
Specifically, Citrix ShareFile would offer secured sharing of files and data, easy management across a multi-tenant environment, and quick, simple delivery of applications through CloudPortal Services Manager. It also enables RapidScale’s team to give customers a proof of concept environment. The application ties seamlessly into RapidScale’s Business Apps as a Service solution, RapidScale CloudApps, which offers business applications built directly into a customer’s virtual environment.
RapidScale has plans to launch hundreds of industry-based applications through CloudApps in the next 24 months with a focus on being a market leader in the area of Business Apps as a Service.
