Tegile Systems Verified for Citrix Ready VDI Capacity Program

Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced that its Zebi storage arrays have been verified as part of the Citrix Ready VDI Capacity Program Verified for Citrix XenDesktop. The Citrix Ready VDI Capacity program is designed specifically to address the storage needs of customers who already have or are thinking about implementing VDI using XenDesktop.

VDI presents multiple types of data, each with its own unique requirements to the storage infrastructure tier. Storage in turn can cope with these requirements using various hardware and software-based approaches, some of which can be combined into hybrid solutions.

The Citrix Ready VDI Capacity program helps guide customers regarding VDI storage needs. The program enables Citrix storage partners to test their solutions against a turnkey "VDI Capacity" test environment that contains the necessary compute resources needed to generate a 750-user reference XenDesktop deployment, and thus demonstrating the appropriate amount of storage performance and capacity with a cost-efficient design. Partners whose technology satisfies the test criteria are determined to be verified as part of the Citrix Ready VDI Capacity Program Verified for 750 users.

"Tegile has satisfactorily completed the testing requirements to join the Citrix Ready VDI Capacity program," said Greg Fox, director, Citrix Ready program at Citrix. "Through this program, we are working with our storage partners to help provide our joint customers with guidance in choosing storage solutions for their XenDesktop VDI deployments. By taking part in the program, Tegile is helping customers make informed product purchasing decisions."

"As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we are able to offer customers intelligent solutions that combine our Zebi storage arrays with Citrix XenDesktop," said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing at Tegile. "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."
