SYDNEY and MELBOURNE, Australia – May 27, 2008 – In conjunction with Citrix’s Application Development Conferences taking place May 27th in Sydney and June 3rd in Melbourne, DataCore Software today announced that its two industry leading storage virtualization solutions, SANsymphony and SANmelody, have been verified as Citrix Ready™ for XenServer 4.1 as virtual SAN appliances running on XenServer virtual machines as well as in a standard physical storage server configuration. The momentum continues to build for DataCore virtual SAN solutions delivered in combination with Citrix XenServer environments. Recent customers include Citrix, Sherron Associates, Inc., Digital Control, Integra Pacific Mortgage, Weishardt Group, Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls, DocuLegal and Douglas County.

DataCore president and CEO George Teixeira and the DataCore ANZ team will showcase these new capabilities at the DataCore booth at both Citrix events. “DataCore’s virtual SAN appliance and cost-effective disaster recovery solutions provide a new level of flexibility for the base of Citrix users in Australia,” said Teixeira.

Recent customers deploying DataCore in combination with virtual servers include Telstra Super, Newmont Mining, Hertz Australia, Daimler Chrysler, DDI Health, Chandler Macleod, Glenvill Group, and Kingston City Council, among others.”

The Citrix Ready program recognizes Citrix partner products that have been validated by Citrix and/or partners to work in Citrix environments, making it simpler for customers to identify solutions that can be used with confidence in Citrix environments. Rigorous testing verified that both SANmelody and SANsymphony will support XenServer 4.1 virtual machines with virtual storage and advanced storage services critical to demanding virtual server environments, such as fail-safe data protection, high availability mirroring, disaster recovery replication, SANmotion data migration, thin provisioning storage pools and high speed caching for performance acceleration.
