Citrix Systems has made a strategic investment in GlassHouse Technologies, a global data center consulting and managed services firm, expanding the existing relationship between the two companies with Citrix becoming a premier desktop virtualization partner of GlassHouse.
The investment also provides Citrix with an observer’s seat on the GlassHouse board of directors. Others terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
GlassHouse Technologies stresses that the expanded relationship between the companies will not interfere with its current business model as a vendor-independent consulting firm, but that remains to be seen.
According to our data, GlassHouse had raised roughly $77 million up until today.
