Citrix Synergy is here! Are you ready? We are! In fact, we are Citrix Ready®! Pun aside, we’re pleased to announce that Tintri VMstore has been verified as Citrix Ready® for Citrix XenDesktop® versions 7, 7.1, and 7.5.
As most of you already know, our hypervisor-agnostic smart storage systems are designed to support mixed workloads—server, VDI, and dev & test—concurrently with VM-level quality-of-service (QoS). That means the virtual desktops and applications will perform well, even when they are mixed into one big easy-to-manage datastore. The adaptive learning behavior of Tintri VMstore does the heavy lifting of working set analysis & optimization so you can focus your attention elsewhere.
We are also excited to share with you a number of new white papers that are geared towards helping you to get the most out of Tintri VMstore systems for running XenDesktop environments. Whether you are an Architect already familiar with XenDesktop and are tasked with planning and designing XenDesktop infrastructure, or an admin who currently supports it, or new to XenDesktop and looking to get your feet wet with a XenDesktop evaluation, these papers are for you!
The first in the series is a XenDesktop Quick Start Guide that will walk you through the process of installing XenDesktop in a very tactical point A to point B manner. Tintri application-aware storage is the perfect platform for your XenDesktop Infrastructure and completely simplifies storage so that you can spend your time and effort on what matters most to you, the applications and VMs that use the storage. The storage no longer has to be the necessary evil that has always required special attention to configure, maintain, and support. Instead, it becomes a powerful tool you can leverage to learn more about what matters most in your environment: applications.
