Citrix and DataCore Form Strategic Alliance
The two vendors will partner to open up new SMB markets in Canada and the U.S.
DataCore Software, a Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.-based storage virtualization SAN software solution provider, is working with Citrix XenDesktop, an application delivery infrastructure, to open up new market opportunities in the North American SMB space.
At the Citrix App Delivery Expo in Las Vegas last week, DataCore announced its virtual SAN solutions will be capable of supporting Citrix XenDesktop, to help make Windows desktop delivery from datacenters easier and faster.
George Teixeira, CEO and president at DataCore, explains the company’s main objective is to be able to offer an end to end total enterprise virtualization solution to its partners and end-users.
“We’ve always partnered with VARs who either sell Citrix or VMware products because they sell virtual desktops and servers and we’re selling virtualization solutions,” Teixeira said.
