Cloud-based systems management company ScaleXtreme has announced support for Citrix CloudStack, the free and open source cloud infrastructure platform that helps providers of all types deploy and manage cloud services that are scalable, secure and open by design.
Customers can now use CloudStack to deploy and build a cloud, and then effectively manage it with the Citrix Ready verified ScaleXtreme.
Users can sign up for the free ScaleXtreme Xpress product, which offers systems management for an unlimited number of private cloud and public cloud servers.
“CloudStack is driving emerging cloud standards and bringing order to chaos of multiple hypervisors and APIs. It has had impressive success because it helps companies construct clouds quickly and reliably”
“We want to offer our customers choice as they build cloud infrastructures while ensuring that their cloud solution of choice easily integrates with other cloud technologies,” said Sameer Dholakia, group vice president and general manager, Cloud Platforms Group at Citrix. “ScaleXtreme’s support of CloudStack will enable our joint customers to effectively manage the entire lifecycle of machines within their clouds.”
ScaleXtreme makes managing complex systems easy. It provides a single, unified view to provision and manage servers throughout their entire lifecycle. Customers can access and control all their servers, whether local or hosted, in public or private clouds, through a single cloud-based service. Given that ScaleXtreme is hosted entirely in the cloud, there’s no need to deploy expensive software on-site.
Citrix CloudStack provides customers with the fastest path to the cloud by providing the most advanced software technologies for building highly scalable, highly reliable cloud computing environments. More than 60 large-scale production clouds have been deployed using the open source CloudStack, including GoDaddy, GreenQloud, KT, Nokia, Tata Communications and Zynga.
“CloudStack is driving emerging cloud standards and bringing order to chaos of multiple hypervisors and APIs. It has had impressive success because it helps companies construct clouds quickly and reliably,” said Nand Mulchandani, co-founder and CEO of ScaleXtreme. “We look forward to working with Citrix to benefit our joint customers, nurture our growing relationship and help users manage the entire server lifecycle.”
ScaleXtreme’s support of CloudStack follows its recent support of OpenStack and fulfills its ongoing commitment to give customers a choice in emerging cloud platforms. It makes clouds easy to create and easy to control.
