SteelEye Joins Citrix Ready Program
SteelEye Technology, Inc., a leading provider of business continuity and disaster recovery solutions for multi-vendor IT infrastructures, today announced that it has deepened its strategic alliance with Citrix by joining the Citrix Ready™ Program. Through this relationship, SteelEye and Citrix are delivering data replication and disaster recovery solutions to Citrix XenServer™ customers.

The Citrix Ready Program is designed for organizations that have demonstrated in-depth product and solution compatibility with one or more Citrix products. The Citrix Ready designation makes it easier for customers and channel partners to identify products that have been thoroughly tested and can be used with confidence in Citrix environments.

SteelEye's data replication and disaster recovery solutions are designed and engineered to meet a wide range of high availability requirements for storage. They are modular, enabling users to scale their levels of high availability protection according to their evolving requirements. SteelEye automates these business continuity processes both locally (with high availability clustering) and remotely (with full, enterprise-grade wide-area disaster recovery solutions).

SteelEye Protection Suite for Citrix XenServer reinforces the stability of a virtualized XenServer environment during planned and unplanned downtime. It is a host-based, volume-level replication solution that provides true continuous data protection (CDP) support for any type of application.

"We're excited to welcome SteelEye to the Citrix Ready Program, which now includes more than 100 technology partners and over 550 verified partner products," said John Fanelli, VP, Solutions and Community Marketing at Citrix. "We are confident that when deployed together, SteelEye's business continuity solutions add significant value to our XenServer platform by bringing additional peace of mind to our customers."

SteelEye Protection Suite for Citrix XenServer was designed specifically for companies that have migrated critical enterprise applications to Citrix XenServer and want to protect those virtual machines against data center outages to ensure business continuity. SteelEye Protection Suite for Citrix XenServer is the only solution to provide real-time LAN and WAN replication of XenServer virtual machines. It also offers unequalled flexibility in supporting any mixture of virtual and physical servers that can be combined into a single solution, providing a virtual-to-virtual, virtual-to-physical or physical-to-virtual replication prop.

"SteelEye and Citrix have forged a strong partnership over the last several years," said Garrett Gafke, co-CEO and president of SteelEye. "By joining the Citrix Ready Program, we have made it even easier for companies of all sizes to implement our integrated solutions and to be confident their business critical applications and data are always available."

SteelEye Protection Suite for Citrix XenServer is available through SteelEye's global network of value-added resellers and OEM partners.
