I am very excited about the prospects of the partnership that we announced today with Citrix Systems, Inc. - a leading provider of virtualization, networking and software-as-a-service (SaaS) technologies. Carpathia and Citrix share an important mutual objective, to use innovative virtualization and networking technology to deliver powerful solutions for the managers of the enterprise datacenter. The powerful combination of our managed hosting services coupled with Citrix technology, delivers an enterprise cloud solution designed for customers seeking to deploy production-ready applications in the cloud.
For Carpathia, the cloud has always been about robust, enterprise-grade cloud services, not commoditized rented compute power. Our customers are demanding the same level of management focus and solution orientation in the cloud as they do in our more traditional managed hosting portfolio. Carpathia and Citrix are working together to collaborate and innovate around delivering the best managed hosting and cloud services we can to our customers. We have already experienced some nice wins together; I was happy to announce the SugarSync win today, the same day that we announced our Citrix partnership and the release of our second generation InstantOn™ cloud solution.
We look forward to a long and successful relationship with Citrix and to the opportunity to continue to drive innovation in the hosting industry. We know our customers and partners will benefit from it.
