We are pleased to bring you a guest post by Raymond Mar, Strategic Alliance Manager at Pure Storage. As a key Citrix Ready partner, Pure Storage delivers great technology to Citrix customers. Read on to find out how we are collaborating at several fronts to bring the best user experience to you.

Building the Next ‘Happiest Place’ on Earth

Pure Storage® is excited to be a sponsor of the upcoming Citrix® Summit 2017 in Anaheim. As I plan my trip to the land of the “mouse”, I can’t help but reminisce about Walt Disney, the iconic figure who taught us not to just dream, but dream big! His vision of creating the happiest place on earth became a reality despite skepticism and doubt. But, today many of us and now our children have experienced, even if for a brief moment, this magical place. The founders of Pure Storage had a vision of building the next great storage company and seven years later we are ecstatic to see how far we have come. Pure Storage has enabled over 2,000 customers to experience how best-of-breed storage can transform a business. Today, some of the happiest customers in the world rated us with a Net Promoter Score of 83.5, validated by Satmetrix. We have built a special company and culture that has garnered some humbling recognition, including Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays, positioning Pure Storage as a leader for the 3rd year in a row!

As a proud Citrix Ready partner, Pure Storage partners with Citrix to remove barriers to deploying enterprise wide, secure virtual apps and desktops. We’ve been working behind the scenes to ensure a seamless integration of our technologies. Our solutions are fully verified by Citrix Ready to be compatible with Citrix products so we can bring you the best of both worlds. In addition, it’s our endeavor to provide you confidence and assure you of compatibility across these technologies. What’s coming in our partnership in the New Year is what excites us even more…

We just completed work on our new Cisco® Validated Design for FlashStack with 5000 seat Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp. This joint effort validates how Pure Storage, Citrix, and Cisco enable companies, large and small, to confidently deploy virtual apps and desktops at scale and that are highly performant, resilient, and secure. You can deliver this to your customers today as a FlashStack™ Authorized Partner! You can learn how during our upcoming webinar Tue, Jan 24th, where we’ll share the results of the CVD. Register here today and invite your customers.

If you sell into the healthcare or education markets, we have new assets available for you to leverage for your sales campaigns. First, a video of Judson Independent School District sharing how Citrix and Pure Storage helped them deliver improved student productivity. Second, a webinar featuring a joint customer, OB/GYN of Indiana, sharing the benefits and successes achieved delivering better patient care and clinician productivity with Citrix on Pure Storage. Speaking of healthcare, Pure Storage will be joining Citrix at HiMSS in February, so make sure to send your prospects and customers over to meet us in the Citrix Ready Partner Pavilion and at the Pure Storage booth.
