Citrix CloudPlatform Cited as Cloud Management Champion

Citrix CloudPlatform has been named Champion in Info-Tech Research Group’s Cloud Management Vendor Landscape

Citrix today announced that Citrix CloudPlatform™ has been listed as a Champion in Info-Tech Research Group’s Cloud Management Vendor Landscape. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise, Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscapes pay tribute to the contribution of exceptional vendors in a particular category. Champions are defined as “offering excellent value,” “having a strong market presence” and acting as “trend setters for the industry.”

Citrix CloudPlatform, powered by Apache CloudStack™, is a leading open source platform for building, managing and delivering highly scalable private and public clouds. A key part of the Citrix “Path to the Cloud” strategy which spans servers, networking and desktops, Citrix CloudPlatform provides the foundation for next generation cloud computing offerings for more than 150 paid large production customers, including leading global service providers such as China Telecom, EVRY, KT and NTT Communications, enterprises such as Bechtel and Nokia Research Group, and consumer application companies like Edmunds and NetFlix. With support for Amazon APIs for hybrid cloud deployments; broad hardware and hypervisor support; and a single management console accessible via command line interface, web-GUI, or orchestrated using APIs, Citrix CloudPlatform is a logical choice for any enterprise or service provider looking to deploy a cloud.

As hybrid cloud scenarios become more commonplace, it will be important for service providers to select a solution that supports the install base of its clients. Enterprises should look to solutions that can be layered on existing hardware, whether commodity servers, blade systems or virtualized infrastructures with storage. Citrix CloudPlatform offers flexible hypervisor and hardware deployment options with the support of a mature vendor and a strong open source community. For public cloud integration for seasonal or project-based variation in requirements for resources, capability to integrate with Amazon using its APIs is a plus.
