Springpath Data Platform Hyperconverged Software Solution Verified for Citrix XenDesktop 7.6


Sunnyvale, Calif. – July 9, 2015 – Springpath, a pioneer in software-based hyperconverged infrastructure, today announced that its Springpath Data Platform has been verified as Citrix Ready®. The Citrix Ready program helps customers identify third-party solutions that are recommended to enhance virtualization solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. Springpath Data Platform completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with XenDesktop® 7.6, providing confidence in the joint solution compatibility.

“Springpath Data Platform’s ability to reduce costs, simplify deployment and management, and enable consistent performance that scales linearly makes it an ideal solution for VDI environments,” said Ravi Parthasarathy, vice president of Product Management at Springpath. “As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we now offer customers enterprise-grade hyperconvergence that is verified for Citrix XenDesktop 7.6.”

Springpath Data Platform converges the entire infrastructure stack into a single elastic resource pool running on customers’ choice of servers, eliminating the need for organizations to purchase expensive network storage for VDI. Springpath customers can perform storage management at the VM-level, simplifying provisioning and ongoing management of VDI environments.

The joint solution enables organizations to deploy hundreds of desktops in minutes with its rapid cloning. The Springpath VDI solution successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix and has proven to work effectively with XenDesktop 7.6 to provide reliable and scalable compute and storage services for both persistent and non-persistent desktops.
