In preparation for our Server Virtualization Round Table next week, January 8th, 2013, this week’s roundup looks at what people are saying about Citrix XenServer, an enterprise-ready, cloud-proven virtualization platform available in both free and paid editions. Here are a few highlights:
- Kapilmalik1983 (IT Administrator at a large Tech Energy and Utilities company) says: “It provides simple and robust commands to manage Xen environment for managing virtual hosts. [It is] highly recommended for administrators having sound knowledge of open source commands.”
- sumodirjo (Infrastructure Expert at a small System/Network Integrator firm) says: “XenCenter is not available on Mac OS X or Linux so we can only manage XenServer(s) from Windows..[It is a] good alternative to VMware ESXi [and] you can use the free version to try the product first.”
- Mgrntwrk422 (Network/Communication Manager at a small organization in local government) says: “XenServer is my favorite virtualization product. After previewing VMware, Xen and Hyper-V, I found this to be the easiest.”
- Anon375 (Network/Communications Expert at a small retail company) says: “Simple and highly optimized performance. Bigger footpring than VMware, alone with dependence on Linux in Dom.”
