Citrix invests in PHD Virtual

Just a couple of weeks ago, PHD Virtual announced its intention to extend its support beyond VMware ESX, embracing Citrix virtualization platforms for the near future. The company even presented a preview of their backup/restore solution for XenServer called Backup for Citrix XenServer at the Citrix Synergy conference in San Francisco.

And now, just a few days after, the company announces that Citrix is investing in them.
The undisclosed sum is part of new round led by the virtualization vendor and Insight Venture Partner.

Last but not least, the flagship product esXpress is no more. To reflect the new strategy PHD Virtual just renamed it Virtual Backup for VMware ESX.
