WHIPTAIL's INVICTA and ACCELA Flash Storage Solutions Are Verified as Citrix Ready

WHIPTAIL, the world leader in high performance, 100 percent silicon storage arrays, today announced the company’s flash storage arrays –INVICTA and ACCELA – are verified as Citrix Ready. The Citrix Ready program helps customers identify third-party solutions that are recommended to enhance virtualization, networking and cloud computing solutions from Citrix. INVICTA and ACCELA have completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with multiple versions of Citrix XenServer providing confidence in joint solution compatibility.

The Citrix Ready program makes it easy for customers to identify complementary products and solutions that can enhance Citrix environments. Both INVICTA and ACCELA successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix, and can be trusted to work effectively with XenServer in order to significantly improve virtual desktop infrastructure deployments (VDI) while reducing latency.

Both INVICTA and ACCELA are flash silicon storage arrays that deliver high performance and dramatically improve application response time while consuming less energy than legacy storage arrays. WHIPTAIL's silicon storage arrays enable databases, virtualized and online environments, to process more data in significantly less time. More specifically, ACCELA provides 100% improvement in IOPS and 1000% reduction in latency over hard disk drives and INVICTA is able to virtually eliminate lag-time and latency for VDI deployments in excess of 12,000 concurrent users in 14U of rack space and a nominal 1500 watts of power.

“We are pleased to have WHIPTAIL join us in the Citrix Ready program,” said Ranjit Castelino, director, Citrix Ready, Citrix. “Citrix Ready makes it easier for customers to select the most suitable virtualization infrastructure products for their specific needs. By taking part in our program, WHIPTAIL has enabled its customers to obtain the highest quality user experience available today, and the simplest means for making an informed product purchasing selection.”

“As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we are able to offer customers intelligent solutions that combine INVICTA and ACCELA with the XenServer product,” said James Candelaria, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of WHIPTAIL. “The offering clearly demonstrates our plans to work closely with trusted partners, through the Citrix Ready partner ecosystem, in order to provide the highest quality experience for our customers.”
