Sanbolic recently announced that their Sanbolic Platform has 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.
Sanbolic Platform is Trusted to Address the Storage Needs of Customers Implementing VDI Using Citrix XenDesktop
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.
“Sanbolic 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, Sanbolic 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 SDS software platform with Citrix XenDesktop,” said Andy Melmed, VP, Enterprise Architecture. “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.”
