The joint solution gives customers access to a broader portfolio of products to dramatically increase performance and scale for Mirantis OpenStack deployments. In addition, Mirantis will work with Citrix to integrate the deployment of XenServer, the company’s commercial virtualization platform based on the open-source Xen Project Hypervisor, through the OpenStack Fuel installer, which dramatically simplifies and accelerates the deployment of Mirantis OpenStack and core technologies to deploy cloud infrastructure. Citrix will also cross-certify XenServer with Mirantis OpenStack later this year. Customers are increasingly faced with the challenge of scaling their OpenStack deployments and looking for production-grade infrastructure that supports the demands of their business.
