– Adi Paz, Executive Vice President, Marketing and Business Development at Gigaspaces, says:
GigaSpaces Cloudify platform has been verified as Citrix Ready® as part of The Citrix Ready program, which helps customers identify third-party solutions recommended to enhance virtualization, networking and cloud computing solutions from Citrix. Cloudify completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with Citrix CloudPlatform™ (powered by Apache CloudStack) to automate the installation and management of multi-tier applications on CloudPlatform.
Cloudify’s open-source cloud orchestration software platform provides deployment, management and automatic scaling of complex, enterprise applications on the cloud. Cloudify automates the entire application lifecycle, significantly minimizing the complexity of managing applications on the cloud.
Cloudify provides Citrix CloudPlatform users a simple tool with which to deploy, monitor, heal and scale their complex applications by automating their processes in the cloud. The combined solution enables users to automate and orchestrate multi-tier application deployments on top of CloudStack, as well manage and monitor post-deployment processes.
In addition, through Cloudify’s abstraction layer, Cloudify makes it possible for Citrix CloudPlatform users to easily build a hybrid cloud solution between CloudStack and other clouds for business continuity, disaster recovery, and cloud-bursting scenarios. This means that CloudPlatform users can extend their Cloudify deployments to other environments, including high-performance environments, such as bare-metal and even non-virtualized environments.
“Citrix Ready makes it easier for customers to select the most suitable cloud products for their specific needs,” said Greg Fox, Director, Citrix Ready Program at Citrix. “By taking part in our program, GigaSpaces’ Cloudify has enabled its customers to obtain a high-quality user experience and the simplest means for making an informed product purchasing selection.”
As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we are able to offer customers intelligent solutions that combine Cloudify with CloudPlatform. Together, they provide a comprehensive orchestration solution for automating the deployment and management of applications on the cloud, creating the highest quality experience for our customers.
