Citrix will combine the newly-acquired Virtual Computer technology with its market-leading XenClient® hypervisor to create the new Citrix XenClient Enterprise edition. The new XenClient Enterprise will combine all the power of the XenClient hypervisor with a rich set of management functionality designed to help enterprise customers manage large fleets of corporate laptops across a distributed enterprise.
Citrix XenServer 6 is a complete, enterprise-class virtualization platform used to integrate, manage and automate a virtual datacenter. A full suite of server virtualization tools delivers cost savings throughout your datacenter. Improved datacenter flexibility and reliability provide high performance support for your business. Additionally, new features allow you to manage the virtual network that ties all of your virtual machines together and to delegate management access to virtual machines for individual application owners.
Citrix XenClient is a high-performance, bare-metal hypervisor that runs directly on the client device hardware, dividing up the resources of the machine and enabling multiple operating systems to run side by side in complete isolation.
virtualisation is now going to a three horse race:
- Xen (Citrix)
- KVM (Red Hat)
- VI (VMware)
and all are coming from different positions of strength – and weakness !
