Alike Verified as Citrix Ready

Alike’s deduplicating backup solution is trusted to enhance Citrix Delivery Center Solutions

BURLINGTON, VT. » January 11, 2010 » QuorumSoft today announced that its Alike™ backup product has been verified as Citrix Ready. The Citrix Ready™ program helps customers identify third-party solutions that add the greatest value to Citrix Delivery Center Infrastructure solutions. Alike completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with Citrix® XenServerr™ 5.5.

The Citrix Ready program makes it easy for customers to identify complementary products and solutions that can enhance Citrix environments. Customers can be confident that Alike has successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix and can be trusted to work effectively with XenServer.

Alike is a complete solution for Citrix XenServer archiving, providing image-level backups of VMs, even while they are running. Its easy-to-use use interface allows administrators to schedule jobs, restore guests, and view reports on all archival activity. Alike understands XenServer resource pools and is capable of backing up a VM on any Host in a Pool, providing transactionally-consistent backups of supported applications. Its powerful deduplication engine compresses all guest backups, and regularly achieves compression ratios of 160:1 against a single active VM over time.

“Citrix Ready makes it easier for customers to select the best application delivery products for their specific needs from the large number of solutions developed by the extensive Citrix partner ecosystem,” said John Bryan, director, Business Development for Citrix. “The Citrix Ready logo attests to the high quality of QuorumSoft’s product and its suitability for a Citrix environment.”

“Citrix Ready dramatically increases our visibility to Citrix customers and channels, clearly demonstrating our commitment to providing solutions that add value to Citrix products,” said QuorumSoft spokesman Max Ekstrom. “The offering also provides the basis for a community in which vendors and customers can interact and share information through the dedicated Citrix Ready e-marketplace.” Added Founder Phil Baskette, “Our goal is to help the XenServer community realize the archiving advantages of virtualization. Partnering with Citrix means XenServer customers can trust our solution to deliver on efficient agentless backups from the moment of installation”.
