DataCore's Virtual SAN Appliance and Storage Virtualization Software Are Citrix Ready for XenServer 4.1
In anticipation of the Citrix Synergy conference beginning May 20th in Houston, Texas, DataCore Software today announced that its two industry leading storage virtualization solutions, SANsymphony and SANmelody, have been verified as Citrix Ready™ for XenServer 4.1 as virtual SAN appliances running on XenServer virtual machines as well as in a standard, physical storage server configuration. Rigorous testing verified that both implementations will support XenServer 4.1 virtual machines with virtual storage and advanced storage services critical to demanding virtual server environments, such as fail-safe data protection, high availability mirroring, disaster recovery replication, SANmotion data migration, thin provisioning storage pools and high speed caching for performance acceleration.   

The momentum continues to build for DataCore virtual SAN solutions delivered in combination with Citrix XenServer environments. Recent customers include Citrix, Sherron Associates, Inc., Digital Control, Integra Pacific Mortgage, Weishardt Group, Haberdashers' Aske's School for Girls, DocuLegal and Douglas County. 

“Now more than ever, storage virtualization is being adopted hand-in-hand with server, desktop and application delivery virtualization,” said George Teixeira, president and CEO DataCore Software. “Our storage virtualization software, which can be implemented as a virtual appliance or running on any standard physical software, creates a ‘storage usability layer,’ giving your storage the consolidation flexibility, simplicity, and utilization benefits of virtualization and the advantage of performing all your important storage services across all your physical storage as a single pool, instead of having to fuss with these devices individually.”  

The Citrix Ready program recognizes Citrix partner products that have been validated by Citrix and/or partners to work in Citrix environments, making it simpler for customers to identify solutions that can be used with confidence in Citrix environments.
