StorageWorks goes Citrix and Hyper-V virtual

HP cosies up to Citrix

HP is automating the provisioning and virtualisation of its storage arrays with Citrix and Microsoft server virtualisation.

It's supporting Citrix's StorageLink interface to enable its EVA, MSA and LeftHand arrays to be used to better effect in Citrix XenServer and Microsoft Hyper-V environments.

Virtual server, desktop and storage environments can be managed simultaneously by a single administrator with StorageLink. That should save time and operational cost.

HP is also working with VMware and its vStorage API. Dave Roberson, HP's GM and SVP for its StorageWorks operation, said: "HP is working closely with VMware to make our comprehensive storage portfolio ‘virtualization-aware,’ enabling businesses to cost-effectively deploy and manage storage so their data centers achieve maximum efficiency.” ®
