New hybrid storage solutions

Citrix shouldn't be short of accommodation in Vegas this week, having just announced the deployment of a 1,200 terminal WinFrame/MetFrame system across the four hotels in the Mirage Resorts empire. These are the Mirage, home of the volcano and Siegfried and Roy; Treasure Island, where a ship full of dubious English accents sinks several times a day (weather permitting); Bellagio, the flash new Italian theme complex built on the site of the old Sands, and the trad downtown casino-themed casino, the Golden Nugget. The Citrix system is running the outfit's new property management system, and is claimed to have improved use of bandwidth, increased employee productivity and reduced total cost of ownership. The property management system deals with hotel reservations, check-in and room transactions. The largest implementation is at the Bellagio, and according to Citrix, this resort has reduced access times by more than half since it opened in October. It's not entirely clear why in that case it didn't open with Citrix systems up and running in the first place. Or indeed what it was using when it opened. Or how it can make this calculation based on such a small amount of data. But who are we to, etc? ®
