Virtual SAN appliance for Citrix

DataCore Software : 07 August, 2009  (New Product)
DataCore teams with Citrix for delivering virtual SAN appliance to Citrix XenServer and Microsoft Hyper-V users
DataCore Software has teamed up with Citrix Systems to distribute a free to try, downloadable, DataCore Virtual SAN Appliance, and that it has released a Citrix StorageLink adapter to integrate its storage Virtualisation solutions with Citrix Essentials for XenServer and Microsoft Hyper-V. The Virtual SAN Appliance evaluation software makes it easy to try Citrix Essentials with a StorageLink-certified, iSCSI shared storage SAN that can pool up to 1 Terabyte of disk space, efficiently "Thin Provision" storage to virtual machines, speed up application performance, and create snapshots for Instant Volume Cloning and Fast Disk-to-Disk Backups.

The DataCore Virtual SAN Appliance and StorageLink Adapter can be downloaded from the DataCore web site.


"With DataCore and Citrix Essentials customers experience a new level of storage and server resource management and cost savings," said George Teixeira DataCore president and CEO. "Customers want performance, productivity and manageability in a dynamic virtual infrastructure, and Citrix Essentials and DataCore deliver it. Through StorageLink, DataCore presents to Citrix Essentials virtual disks that are well behaved, non-stop, lightning fast and waste-free, even though the physical storage behind it may come from a variety of manufacturers and be of a price, age and quality very different from one another. Citrix Essentials adds advanced server Virtualisation management. Together, users get a comprehensive virtual server and virtual storage infrastructure that is highly available, scalable, manageable and affordable."

"Citrix Essentials for XenServer and Hyper-V extend some of the most powerful capabilities needed for shared storage infrastructures, such as live motion and high availability, helping both XenServer and Hyper-V customers transform datacenters into proactive and automated delivery centres," said Gordon Mangione, vice president, Emerging Products, Virtualisation and Management Division at Citrix. "By making use of DataCore's virtual SAN software, these customers can extend those capabilities even further with a storage solution that addresses the special needs of virtual infrastructures without dominating their Virtualisation project budget. DataCore offers customers an ideal foray into the world of shared storage infrastructure."


DataCore welcomes into its worldwide partner network Citrix solution providers who want to make DataCore storage Virtualisation solutions available to their customers. DataCore has developed a fast-track "ramp up" programme for these partners, which provides them with NFR software and the opportunity to build their DataCore businesses at their own pace. The DataCore solutions are verified Citrix Ready through the Open Storage Program, and the downloadable, Virtual SAN appliance makes it simple for anyone to try Citrix Essentials with StorageLink certified storage.
