Global Alliance Partner program to promote compatibility with the Citrix Application Delivery Infrastructure.
While Citrix XenServer takes advantage of the TCO benefits virtualization offers through server consolidation, SteelEye’s Protection Suite for Citrix XenServer is an essential addition for companies to ensure continuity of the virtualization environment; plus, it integrates advanced data replication and high availability clustering technologies to monitor and automatically recover the entire Xen environment.
SteelEye delivers several distinct data and application management functions, all integrated into a single solution for simple deployment. It is built on breakthrough technology which supports clustering together physical and/or virtual servers for continuous data protection, application availability and disaster recovery while providing real-time replication of active Xen Virtual Machine images.
“This is a powerful alliance,” said Garrett Gafke, President of SteelEye. “As a long-time supporter of the use of open source technologies for business-critical computing, we appreciate the focus and effort which Citrix has placed on bringing Citrix XenServer to the enterprise. We will support that initiative by working closely with Citrix to ensure that the SteelEye family of products provides the business continuity that enterprise deployments demand.”
SteelEye recently surveyed over 200 IT professionals in industry sectors including technology, education, manufacturing, finance, government and health care for its annual SteelEye Technology Business Continuity Index. Nearly 50% of respondents surveyed indicate application virtualization plays a role in their business continuity plans. As XenServer further penetrates these markets SteelEye’s Protection Suite for XenServer will deliver the data and application redundancy necessary to assure minimal disruption of business-critical services.
