Virtualization delivers many benefits for cost reduction, resource efficiency, and flexibility. However, a comprehensive, centralized storage system is critical to achieving the leading goals of server virtualization, including:

• Server Consolidation and Resource Efficiency
• Reducing Hardware Costs
• Increasing Flexibility and Agility
• Reducing or Eliminating Downtime
• Ensuring Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity

This EMA whitepaper explains how capabilities like thin provisioning, de-duplication, snapshot and image management, backup management, and more, integrated into virtual server management, directly delivers these key goals. It also describes how Citrix and NetApp are delivering a comprehensive, integrated solution for server virtualization and centralized storage management that ensures these benefits for the Citrix Delivery Center and Citrix Cloud Center solutions, including Citrix XenServer, Citrix XenDesktop, and Citrix XenApp.

It also highlights the benefit of these capabilities in a real-world environment, with a case study of a leading logistic company that has achieved a “disaster-proof” infrastructure, consolidated multiple servers, eliminated potential downtime costs of $150,000 per day, improved user experience, accelerated response to business requests, and cut support costs, all at a third of the cost of alternative solutions.
