Citrix Systems on Tuesday unveiled what it calls an "ultra-converged" solution to deliver applications, desktops and data in a channel-friendly package. At the Citrix Summit partner conference in Las Vegas, CEO Mark Templeton showcased two versions of a WorkspacePod, pre-configured server boxes built from Citrix-certified infrastructure and running the Citrix virtualization stack.

The WorkspacePods come in two configurations—an economy version built by DataON and a higher-end solution from HP—and achieve breakthroughs in price, performance and power-consumption, Templeton told some 4,000 partners attending the conference from around the world.

One of those capabilities was a top-flight software-defined storage technology. That box was checked with the acquisition of Sanbolic, announced Monday, which provides a vendor-agnostic solution of fast, non-blocking read/write to storage and high-end data services.

Because WorkspacePods are pre-integrated and pre-engineered, they are excellent solutions for channel partners to go install for customers. They are scalable for quick deployment of hundreds of servers that can process terabytes of data, and their converged architecture means far fewer connections and cables. IT departments love having a complete system contained in a single part number, Templeton said.
