Citrix Essentials with Site Recovery

Citrix has continued to develop the feature set of Citrix Essentials to enhance the Hyper-V platform.  What is interesting is they have announced a Citrix Essentials Express that is restricted to two host servers.  Included with Citrix Essentials Express is Site Recovery.  This provides some interesting DR alternatives for businesses in the SMB space.  As Citrix Essentials uses its StorageLink feature to provide visibility into the SAN layer to enable Site Recovery the limitation is the number of SAN vendors providing Citrix StorageLink support.  Citrix has set a strategy of continuing to focus on reasonable alternatives for DR automation for the SMB market so expect the capabilities and vendor support to continue to evolve over time.
