Beta Program - VSC 2.0 for Citrix XenServer

Hi All,

If you attended one of my VDI classes at Citrix Synergy or attended one of my executive briefings you've probably heard me talk about VSC.  If this is the first time you've heard of VSC I'm delighted to talk to you about it.  VSC is NetApp's Virtual Storage Console, we have one for vSphere and one for XenServer.  Both are FREE **(Edit 02/07/2013 - Regarding VSC for both VMware and XenServer - They are free to download, but do require specific licenses for some features.)** plugins that you can download now from website.  What's so cool about them?  They're plugins that interact with vSphere and XenServer and give you storage management capabilities right inside of the hypervisor tool!  Provision storage, deduplicate, rapidly clone thousands of machines, are just a few of the cool things you can do.

VSC for vSphere is a bit more mature and has more features, but VSC for XenServer is quickly catching up and we've got a Beta program we'd like YOU (yes you, in the back row talking to your neighbor) to help us test it out!

My product manager is eagerly waiting your emails!  :-)

Here are a couple of links if you'd like to see both versions of VSC in action.  The VSC for XenServer is the current 1.0 version, so hurry up and get that beta to see the 2.0 version!

For VSC for vSphere Nick has a bunch of great videos on Youtube, just search for "vsc netapp"
