Citrix Certifies LeftHand

BOULDER, Colo. -- LeftHand Networks, the leading provider of highly available iSCSI SANs that optimize virtual environments, announced today that its iSCSI SANs are now Citrix Ready™ vendor verified with Citrix XenServer™ 4.1. LeftHand Networks iSCSI SANs complement Citrix XenServer 4.1, providing customers with highly available server and storage solutions for their data center environments.

Powered by SAN/iQ® storage software, LeftHand Networks’ iSCSI SAN solutions deliver a rich, fully-integrated feature set, advanced data protection, centralized management and a best-in-class solution for optimizing performance and manageability in virtual server environments. By allowing customers to assign and allocate storage resources virtually against a pool of physical storage devices, the SAN can be easily scaled up to any required capacity or performance level without incurring any downtime. This flexibility makes LeftHand Networks’ iSCSI SANs an ideal complement to Citrix Systems’ virtual server infrastructures.

“The full benefits of virtual server environments are realized when used in combination with a shared storage solution that provides data protection and availability. With more applications per server and the increased loads inherent in a virtual environment, it’s more important than ever to ensure that a business’ data is available and protected,” said Barry Davis, vice president, business development, for Citrix Systems.
