Carpathia Hosting, a leading provider of enterprise managed hosting and cloud services, and Citrix® Systems, Inc., a leading provider of virtualization, networking and software-as-a-service (SaaS) technologies, today announced a partnership aimed at delivering enterprise public and private cloud solutions for businesses and government agencies.
Carpathia Hosting partnered with Citrix to build its second-generation enterprise cloud solution, Carpathia InstantOn™, on Citrix® XenServer™ technology. The powerful combination of Carpathia’s managed hosting services and Citrix virtualization technology delivers an enterprise cloud solution designed for customers seeking to deploy production-ready applications in the cloud. Enterprises using Carpathia InstantOn can easily deploy custom compute and storage solutions, blending dedicated and cloud resources in a single solution. See today’s announcement, "Carpathia Hosting and Citrix Team Up to Take Enterprise Cloud to the Next Level" for more information.
Additionally, Carpathia Hosting will utilize best-in-class virtualization and networking solutions from Citrix to expand its portfolio of managed hosting services in its 12 datacenters located in North America, Canada and Europe. Carpathia has also migrated its key infrastructure behind Citrix® Netscaler® MPX™, the application acceleration, load balancing and web-security system that powers thousands of enterprise datacenters and most of the world’s largest clouds and websites. By using physical and virtual networking appliances together – the Citrix flex-tenancy architecture – and the NetScaler Pay-As-You-Grow pricing model, Carpathia offers its customers the most robust service levels in the marketplace today.
"We are thrilled to be working so closely with Citrix, and we think this partnership represents a great opportunity to collaborate and innovate around delivering the best managed hosting and cloud services we can to our customers," said Peter Weber, CEO of Carpathia Hosting. "Together, Carpathia Hosting and Citrix can deliver a robust suite of virtualization, networking and enterprise cloud services to our respective customers, aimed at delivering maximum application performance in the datacenter."
Citrix will utilize Carpathia Hosting’s extensive knowledge in delivering complex managed hosting and cloud services to further innovate around XenServer, NetScaler and Citrix Cloud Center™ (Citrix C3). The announcement of Carpathia InstantOn, built on XenServer technology, is just one example of how the two companies have already collaborated and will continue to work closely together in the future. The companies also plan to team up on additional cloud offerings, including virtual desktop as a service and virtual development and test solutions for enterprises and government agencies.
"Carpathia Hosting is driving tremendous innovation in the hosting industry, and we value their input as we continue to evolve our own datacenter and virtualization products," said Klaus Oestermann, group vice president and general manager, Networking and Cloud Product Group at Citrix. "This mutually-beneficial partnership will offer exciting and unique opportunities to both companies and our respective customers."
