PernixData FVP Software Is Verified as Citrix Ready for XenDesktop and XenApp

PernixData Becomes Citrix Ready Premier Partner, Expands Ability to Optimize and Grow VDI Deployments

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2014) - PernixData, the leader in server-side storage intelligence, today announced that PernixData FVP software™ is verified as Citrix Ready® for Citrix XenDesktop® and XenApp® 7.6 and available in the Citrix marketplace. In addition, the company has joined the Citrix Ready Program as a Premier Partner. These joint activities, coupled with numerous live VDI deployments throughout the world, ensure that PernixData's storage acceleration software is compatible with Citrix solutions, providing end users confidence in their ability to deploy high performing, highly scalable virtual desktop and application delivery solutions.

The Citrix Ready program makes it easy for customers to identify complementary products and solutions that can enhance Citrix environments. Customers can be confident that PernixData FVP software has successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix, and can be trusted to work effectively with XenDesktop and XenApp to ensure fast, reliable and scalable virtual desktop and application delivery. 

PernixData FVP™ software clusters flash and RAM across servers to accelerate reads and writes to shared storage. By putting storage intelligence into hosts where the XenDesktop VMs reside, PernixData FVP software substantially lowers VDI latency -- even under peak loads. In addition, FVP provides a cost-effective way of scaling out storage performance as your VDI deployment grows. To view the PernixData FVP software listing in the Citrix Ready Xchange Marketplace, please go here.

"Citrix Ready makes it easier for customers to select the most suitable VDI products for their specific needs. By taking part in our program, PernixData has enabled its customers to obtain the highest quality user experience available today."

"In a very short period of time, FVP software was up and running and delivering substantially more IOPS per virtual desktop than we could get with our storage system alone," said Mark Allen, Technical Support Analyst at se2. "In addition to enhancing the end user VDI experience, FVP software enabled us to confidently grow our Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp environments in a simple and cost effective manner."

"The Citrix Ready program gives PernixData customers confidence that FVP software is a verified solution with Citrix virtual application and desktop solutions," said Mike Arterbury, vice president of business development and alliances at PernixData.
