I described how efficient our Unified Arrays (NS,VNX) are, I hope I was able to show you some non BS real numbers and how EMC FAST CACHE does the hard work for you In the CITRIX XenDesktop 5 usecase.

It is very common in my day to day job that customers requests reference sites that’s showing our technology in a real life working environment.

there’s no better example than the vendor which we are showing how integrate we are with who agree that we put a RA showing that THEY are using EMC Technology..

The Citrix Executive Briefing Center in Santa Clara, California, supports Citrix‘s global sales force, its partners, and hundreds of customer demonstrations each month.

Among the many product demos, Citrix shows its XenDesktop product as a fully functional, production environment that delivers virtual desktops to its top executives. To meet the efficiency, scalability and reliability challenges of this production XenDesktop implementation, Citrix needs to deploy a shared storage infrastructure that can be optimized for desktop performance, to meet service-level agreements (SLA), and to ensure a quality experience for Citrix’s most demanding virtual desktop users including the company’s top executives.

Business solution

For its own XenDesktop deployment, Citrix chooses an EMC® unified storage solution to power its virtual infrastructure. The EMC unified storage solution uses advanced  technologies such as Fully Automated Storage Tiering (FAST VP), FAST Cache, and  Enterprise Flash Drives to deliver a scalable, reliable, and performance-optimized solution that meets the SLAs imposed by its users.

Virtual desktop environments increase security and simplify management because the infrastructure is in a firewall protected, centralized datacenter that is easily managed by local resources. The combination of XenDesktop and EMC unified storage technology enables Citrix to realize a secure desktop infrastructure while reducing operational and capital expenses.
