Nexenta Now Verified for Citrix Ready VDI Capacity Program
Nexenta Software-Defined Storage Platform is Trusted to Address the Storage Needs of Customers Implementing VDI Using Citrix 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.
"Nexenta 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, Nexenta is helping customers make informed product purchasing decisions."
"As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we are able to offer customers intelligent and cost-efficient storage solutions with Citrix XenDesktop. Storage can stall VDI deployments, and the VDI Capacity analysis is validation that NexentaStor adds a great deal of value to VDI environments (http://blog.nexenta.com/
