Gayle Spencer, network administrator at Sherron Associates, a property management firm said, “Without the Citrix XenServer and DataCore combination, we would not have been able to afford to consolidate our servers and install a SAN to protect our storage.
Spencer further clarified that any other solution would have been more expensive and would not have extended the cost savings benefits of virtualization to both servers and storage. Replacing the old servers would also have become very expensive said Spencer.
Scott Gorcester, founder of Moose Logic remarked that DataCore and Citrix XenServer help customers who are going virtual and customers get it immediately when they see it in action. He emphasized that the addition of four new customers in the very first month of the partnership is proof enough.
Gorcester continued, “The DataCore partnership will help us extend the scope of what we offer in terms of virtual infrastructure to our Citrix XenServer clients as well as to our entire base of clients and prospects. Strategically, I see DataCore accelerating our server virtualization sales cycles as well as becoming the storage virtualization vendor on which we can build our Citrix XenServer practice into a ‘Total Enterprise Virtualization’ practice.”
