Citrix releases Version 5.5 of its Citrix Essentials for Microsoft Hyper-V for virtualized environments

Citrix Systems Inc. announced the release of Version 5.5 of its Citrix Essentials for Microsoft Hyper-V, a set of virtualization tools created with Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization software.

The big addition to this package is a program called Citrix StorageLink Site Recovery, which offers to create secondary off-site virtualized operating environments and tools to test the failover process. Using StorageLink, an organization can virtualize their operating environments. These virtualized operating environments serve as master copies that can be assigned by the administrator to run from the secondary site offered by StorageLink during a disaster. Additionally, all the data being stored at the primary site can also be copied to the data backup site.

StorageLink will be available in the Express and Platinum editions of Citrix Essentials for Microsoft Hyper-V.
