Putting the Focus on End-users: Citrix XenServer and Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform
Nutanix CEO, Dheeraj Pandey recently blogged about companies with staying power. They start off as insurgents and bring positive disruption in the industry and as they are about to become incumbents, they re-invent themselves. This customer-centric viewpoint has been one of Nutanix’s guiding principles–from engineering to support to solution development. Nowhere is this more evident than in the area of application and desktop virtualization.
Nutanix and Citrix have constantly disrupted the VDI and app virtualization and delivery space, putting IT’s focus on end-user needs. For example, at Synergy 2016, Nutanix announced a full stack, turn-key Citrix XenDesktop and Microsoft Windows-based VDI solution called InstantON VDI for Citrix, which delivers an enterprise level experience at an affordable price point. The two companies have given architects and administrators the power of choice by bringing to market VDI and app virtualization solutions on several different virtualization stacks. This includes the industry’s first software defined Citrix Validated Solution for XenApp and XenDesktop–running on Microsoft Hyper-V, validated solutions with ESXi and the Citrix MCS integrated solution leveraging the Nutanix AHV virtualization stack. We are furthering this commitment to IT with today’s news.
Together with Citrix, we are proud to announce that Nutanix will be adding support for industry leading Citrix applications including XenApp, XenDesktop, NetScaler VPX and NetScaler running on Citrix XenServer on the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform. Starting with the Nutanix Asterix release, XenServer customers will be able to run XenServer 7 as a tech preview on the Nutanix solution.
