Any cloud service provider, hosting provider, or enterprise using CloudStack to build public and private clouds can immediately start using ScaleXtreme to provision, budget, monitor, patch and manage systems and provide self-service capabilities on top of its CloudStack cloud.
ScaleXtreme completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with Citrix CloudStack™, providing confidence in joint solution compatibility. Customers can be assured that ScaleXtreme’s cloud-based systems management tools have successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix, and can be trusted to work effectively with CloudStack in order to accelerate cloud provisioning and to facilitate cloud patching, budget control and management.
“As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we are able to offer customers intelligent solutions that combine the ScaleXtreme management platform with Citrix products such as CloudStack,” said ScaleXtreme CEO Nand Mulchandani. “Citrix is a powerful partner, and we’re pleased that it is playing a pivotal role in the future of cloud computing infrastructure.”
Mr. Mulchandani will be addressing the audience of the Citrix Synergy™ event in San Francisco’s Moscone Center at 4 p.m. on May 10.

ScaleXtreme provides a single view, unifying the management of an organization’s server environment – spanning private and public cloud machines, different public cloud providers running on any virtualization platform and even physical servers. It works with a variety of operating systems and technology stacks and helps users rapidly scale server deployments using templates. This announcement comes after ScaleXtreme introduced support for CloudStack in October.
