Citrix and NetApp collaborate to simplify cloud storage
Posted on 18-Oct-2012 08:45. | Tags Filed under: News.

Citrix and NetApp announced an extension of their current collaboration aimed at accelerating the adoption of enterprise cloud deployments.

Together, Citrix and NetApp will provide a fully integrated cloud orchestration and storage solution that will address storage automation, resource allocation, and virtual machine backup and recovery.

The move greatly simplifies cloud storage deployment for the companies' mutual customers and will result in faster transitions to private and hybrid clouds.

Over the past few years, cloud computing has evolved from a simple public compute utility model that addressed the needs of individual developers to one that has fundamentally shifted how enterprises deliver, manage, and consume IT services throughout their organizations.

Current product integrations with NetApp storage enable Citrix CloudPlatform to discover and seamlessly incorporate NetApp storage as primary and secondary storage. With this announcement, collaboration between the two companies will build on this existing success with a focus on combining NetApp unified storage solutions and Data ONTAP with both Citrix CloudPlatform and the Apache CloudStack project, providing users with a cloud-ready storage environment that will optimize storage utilization, simplify maintenance, and accelerate the transition to an agile data infrastructure.
