Cut Costs, Cut Power; Go Green With SAN-Less XenServer

Virtualization and Disaster Recovery Without the Headache

BEAVERTON, OR--(Marketwire - August 3, 2009) - LINBIT, the market leader in open source high-availability, is proud to announce support for Citrix XenServer 5. DRBD is a storage replication solution enabling firms of all sizes to scale their storage infrastructure to their needs, all while maintaining business continuity. In June 2009, LINBIT became an official Citrix Technology Alliance Partner and is proud to offer DRBD to XenServer's ever growing user base.

"Citrix XenServer is a great solution for companies looking for scalable virtualization without a high TCO. LINBIT's DRBD module for XenServer provides a high performance storage alternative for organizations looking at expensive iSCSI/Fibre Channel/SAN solutions," says Kavan Smith, CEO, LINBIT, North America. "With a simple installation of our software, your organization will be able to reap the benefits of a SAN... without the price tag, and with better performance."

DRBD's product maturity makes it the de facto real-time HA/DR replication solution. LINBIT continues to deliver solutions that make technology and business sense. It's easy to see why DRBD is chosen time and time again when organizations are reviewing their IT strategies; DRBD provides a 744% ROI in a 5-year comparison against proprietary shared storage solutions such as NetApp (DRBD's TCO after three years is 492% lower).

"XenServer on DRBD provides the best flexibility and performance -- at the lowest entry cost -- enabling live migration and highly available virtualization clustering," adds Charlie Schluting, VP of Strategic Alliances, LINBIT. He continues, "Whether you're replicating locally-attached storage or providing XenServer storage resources via NFS or iSCSI, the DRBD solution beats NAS and SAN configurations on every level."

LINBIT is proud to offer storage alternatives that continue to rival the features and functionality of the shared storage solutions. To celebrate our new XenServer alliance, DRBD installation support will be FREE for the entire month of August! Contact us for more details -- / 1-877-4-LINBIT /
