Datrium DVX Receives Citrix Ready Verification

Datrium, the leading provider of Open Converged Infrastructure for private clouds, today announced that it has been verified as Citrix Ready and the solution is now available in the Citrix Ready Marketplace. The Citrix Ready program helps customers identify third-party solutions that are recommended to enhance virtualization, networking and cloud computing solutions from Citrix. As part of the program, Datrium has completed a rigorous process to ensure its Open Convergence platform, Datrium DVX Rackscale,  is compatible with Citrix XenDesktop.

Datrium DVX is an important addition to the Citrix Ready program as it offers Citrix XenDesktop customers a flexible, simple and affordable solution for growing private cloud deployments.  Citrix XenDesktop and Datrium DVX combine to provide a virtual desktop solution for simple administration, responsive desktop performance, server choice flexibility and cost-effective scaling of virtual desktop deployments.  The Datrium approach also equips administrators with a familiar environment to effortlessly provision virtual desktops, accelerate applications, and protect and recover virtual machines, desktops, and disks.

"We are pleased to have Datrium join us in the Citrix Ready program," said Siddharth Rabindran, Director, Citrix Ready program at 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, Datrium has enabled its customers to obtain the highest quality user experience available today, and the simplest means for making an informed product purchasing selection."

Benefits of integrating Datrium DVX with Citrix XenDesktop include:

  • Start small and scale simply, using new or existing hosts with commodity SSDs and Datrium DVX.  No hardware vendor lock-ins.
  • Handle boot or login storms effectively with all desktops resident in local server flash.
  • Experience data reduction rates of up to 9:1 in VDI deployments using always-on global deduplication and compression.
  • Protect critical data with snapshot, cloning, and elastic replication to ensure virtual desktop backups are available locally and off-site for blazing fast recovery.
  • Safeguard enterprise data from network sniffers with AES-XTS-256 end-to-end software encryption without performance overhead.

Datrium DVX separates on-host IO performance and data services from off-host durable data, so speed and persistent capacity can each be provisioned independently, easily scaling resources with the addition of new compute or data nodes. This separation allows each host to remain stateless so can operate independently from others, allowing for flexible server choice, better resource isolation and overall availability.

"We are proud to have achieved Citrix Ready certification for running Citrix flagship products on Datrium DVX," said Andre Leibovici, Datrium Vice President for Solutions and Alliances. "Reducing datacenter complexities allow Citrix customers to provide best-in-class user experience with superior economics, simple management, scalability, and most importantly higher predictability for successful deployments."
