Citrix Acquires Sanbolic for Scale-out Storage Virtualization

Citrix has acquired Sanbolic, a start-up specializing in workload-oriented storage virtualization technologies. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Sanbolic, which is based in Waltham, Mass., developed a scale-out software architecture for optimizing the delivery of application-specific workloads, from any media type – SSD, Flash and hard drives in NAS, SAN, server-side and cloud deployments. Sanbolic allows customer deployments to be geo-distributed across multiple locations and clouds; to scale in a linear and predictable manner; to have simplified provisioning and management; and to gain overall efficiency.

Citrix said the acquisition of the Sanbolic workload-oriented infrastructure technologies, combined with its own XenDesktop, XenApp and XenMobile products, enables Citrix to develop a range of differentiated solutions. Thes solutions promise to dramatically improve the economics and reduce the complexity of Windows application delivery and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments.

More than 200 Citrix customers already use Sanbolic to guarantee non-stop availability and geo-clustering of their XenApp and XenDesktop solutions.
