NetApp and Citrix have been working together to help thousands of mutual customers accelerate business success with improved agility and lower costs. Most of the NetApp storage systems are Citrix Ready, which means demonstrated compatibility with Citrix Application Delivery Infrastructure.

NetApp and Citrix have engineering teams that are focused on technical integration, developing reference architectures, and documenting best practices.  And we are pleased to say that Citrix has designated NetApp as the preferred storage partner for Citrix ShareFile Enterprise.  As part of our continued collaboration with NetApp, we are pleased to announce that the NetApp Recovery Manager for Citrix ShareFile is Citrix Ready.

IT is struggling to reconcile new user requirements in the workplace, such as the need to securely store, share, and sync data on any device, anywhere, with the need to protect and store sensitive corporate data within their data centers, often to meet compliance requirements. Citrix ShareFile® addresses the needs of both users and IT by delivering a secure yet user-friendly follow-me data solution. NetApp® extends the solution by providing the capability to host more users and boost overall performance by using storage efficiency.

NetApp Recovery Manager for Citrix ShareFile (NRM-CS) provides a background Windows service for Citrix ShareFile administrators to restore user files that have been removed from the Citrix Storage Center. Designed to leverage the data protection and replication provided by Snapshot™, SnapVault®, and SnapMirror® technology, NRM-CS provides the ability to fully automate the file recovery process that has been previously performed manually by the administrator. NRM-CS handles the process of reading the recovery queue, searching for the file(s) in Snapshot, SnapVault and SnapMirror, restoring the file(s) and making it available on the users’ ShareFile account.
