Citrix: HotLink Makes It Easier than Ever to Switch to Citrix XenServer and Unify Hypervisor Management

Today, HotLink, a Citrix Ready Technology Partner, announced a new product called HotLink Hybrid Express for Citrix.

HotLink is known for their cool technology that allows customers to administer and manage multiple hypervisor platforms and cloud workloads from within the commonly used VMware vCenter. This hybrid style of virtual host and VM management is great for customers who are accustomed to working with vCenter, but want to smoothly and easily add XenServer in order to take advantage of its advanced features, better performance, and lower overall costs that come from reducing the vTax.

HotLink Hybrid Express for Citrix is a laser-focused solution for Citrix customers who want to move XenApp and XenDesktop workloads over to XenServer but find it difficult to do so when their IT operations, tools, scripts and training revolve around vCenter. With HotLink, Citrix customers who want to evaluate or move to XenServer don’t have to deploy redundant management stacks, re-write scripts, or immediately learn a new hypervisor management paradigm.

HotLink plugs into vCenter and enables XenServer hosts and VMs to show up right next to the vSphere ones. It uses the familiar vCenter console and management techniques, so there is no re-training involved. Underneath the covers, HotLink does all the work to translate XenServer metadata into the native format that vCenter and its ecosystem understands with no code changes to either vCenter or XenServer. Workloads are automatically converted from vSphere to XenServer, and there’s no need to rebuild virtual machine templates. It’s a completely seamless hybrid management environment, yet deployment takes less than 15 minutes.
