Installing and Configuring Atlantis USX 2.2 for VMware vSphere and NOW Citrix XenServer

Citrix Technology Professional Dane Young  wrote a new blog post on Installing and Configuring Atlantis USX 2.2 for VMware vSphere and now Citrix XenServer. Below is an excerpt of that blog post:

Several months ago, I wrote a getting started guide for Installing and Configuring Atlantis USX 2.0 on VMware vSphere. Since that time, two additional releases have become available and new to USX 2.2 is the ability to manage, present, and consume storage from Citrix XenServer! Read more about the USX on XenServer announcement here. At Atlantis Connect in early February, my friend and fellow Citrix Technology Professional, Thomas Poppelgaard did a session with Atlantis Computing's Mark Nijmeijer where Atlantis USX 2.2 was installed and configured on Citrix XenServer live (in beta at the time)..

USX 2.2 was officially released February 20th 2015. In this blog post, I’ll show you how to install and configure USX 2.2 for vSphere, but also show how USX can now be used to manage, present, and consume Software Defined Storage from VMware vSphere and Citrix XenServer! Of course, all of Atlantis USX HyperDup Data Services including Deduplication, Compression, Caching, and Coalescing (and much more) will be present, regardless of the hypervisor being utilized underneath. This is particularly useful for customers utilizing XenServer for NVIDIA GRID vGPU for Server Based Computing (XenApp) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (XenDesktop) workloads as Atlantis USX is the first hyper-converged storage solution for Citrix XenServer!

Below is a topology of the environment I will be using throughout this blog post.
