TrueNAS Unified Storage Appliance now Citrix Certified

ixsystems logoiXsystems, the all-around FreeBSD company that builds FreeBSD certified servers and storage solutions, has announced that their TrueNAS Unified Storage Appliance has been now been certified as Citrix Ready.

“The Citrix Ready program helps customers identify third party solutions that are recommended to enhance virtualization, networking, and cloud computing solutions from Citrix. TrueNAS completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with Citrix XenServer®, providing confidence in joint solution compatibility.

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 TrueNAS™ has successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix, and can be trusted to work effectively with XenServer to keep virtual machines available and business running smoothly.

TrueNAS has been verified for use with XenServer through both NFS and iSCSI. TrueNAS includes a wide variety of protocols and services to support both file-based and block-based usage. Completion of Citrix Ready verification is a step forward, confirming TrueNAS’s ability to integrate into virtualized environments. Many iXsystems clients already back their XenServer infrastructure with TrueNAS, enjoying easy management and reliable performance.

As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we are able to offer our clients intelligent solutions that combine TrueNAS unified storage with Citrix XenServer,” said Peter Allen, Applied Engineering Specialist. “The offering demonstrates our plans to work with trusted partners, through the Citrix Ready partner ecosystem, in order to provide the highest quality experience for our clients.”

    I’d buy TrueNAS in a heartbeat if it was an option.

    We have 20+ SuperMicro storage servers and JBODs – exactly the same hardware as iXsystems sells rebranded but we can’t buy TrueNAS as a software product, only if we buy the hardware at inflated prices.

    This is what is holding FreeNAS/TrueNAS back – if TrueNAS was available as a licensed product, it would have far better Enterprise reach.

    Why not sell it on a hardware dongle so you’d have to buy the dongle from iXsystems – this way you control the quality of the boot drive as well on the TrueNAS installations.
