Citrix Branch Repeater VPX Going Hyper-V – Unveiling Tech Preview at Microsoft TechEd 2010
Today we are excited to unveil a tech preview of our upcoming Branch Repeater VPX for Hyper-V at Microsoft TechEd in New Orleans. This tech preview makes Citrix the first and only WAN Optimization vendor as well as the first and only Microsoft Networking Alliance partner to announce a virtual WAN Optimization appliance for Microsoft Hyper-V.
IT is increasingly moving toward a virtualized world – from virtualizing servers and storage in the datacenter to desktops in offices and now to the new frontiers – branch offices and networks. To help our customers establish virtualization on these new frontiers, we remain committed to supporting Branch Repeater VPX on all the leading type-1 hypervisors – Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESX.
The tech preview of Branch Repeater VPX for Hyper-V comes less than 100 days after we introduced Branch Repeater VPX for XenServer. Organizations have a variety of branch offices. Some are suited for the plug-n-play of consolidated ‘Windows + WAN optimization’ hardware appliances from a single vendor. Others are equipped for and require the flexibility of virtual appliances to support broader applications and non-Windows systems in the branch. While VMware ESX has been prevalent in customers’ datacenters, Microsoft infrastructure is more prevalent in their branch offices.
