FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualization software, today announced that its SANsymphony(TM) and SANmelody(TM) products have been certified on Citrix's newest XenServer 5 release as virtual SAN appliances, as well as on both standard servers and blades. With XenServer 5, Citrix has optimized Citrix XenApp performance on XenServer virtual machines. According to Citrix, this enables XenApp workloads to be virtualized with as little as 7% overhead and as many as 73% more users than XenApp workloads virtualized with competing products. Citrix XenApp (formerly Citrix Presentation Server) is used by more than 100 million users and 99% of the Fortune Global 500.

"Our storage virtualization software creates a 'storage usability layer,' giving your storage the consolidation flexibility, simplicity, and utilization benefits of virtualization and the advantage of performing all your important storage services across all your physical storage as a single pool, instead of having to fuss with these devices individually," said George Teixeira, president and CEO DataCore Software. "Now more than ever, storage virtualization is being adopted hand-in-hand with server, desktop and application delivery virtualization."
