Citrix XenServer is a complete, managed server virtualization platform built on the powerful Xen hypervisor. Xen technology is widely acknowledged as the fastest and most secure virtualization Software in the industry. XenServer is designed for efficient management of Windows and Linux virtual servers and delivers cost-effective server consolidation and business continuity.
Server virtualizationis a proven technology that enables multiple virtual machinesto run on a single physical server. Each virtual machine is completely isolated from other virtual machines and is decoupled from the underlying host by a thin layer of Software known as a hypervisor. This allows each virtual machineto run different operating systems and applications. Because the machines have been decoupled from the underlying host, the guest can also be moved from one physical server host to another while running; this is known as live migration. These attributes are transforming how organizations approach virtual computing.
Citrix XenServer consolidates server workloads, which produces savings in power, cooling, and management costs, an increased ability to adapt to ever-changing IT environments, an optimized use of existing hardware, and an improved level of IT reliability.
Citrix XenServer also provides all of the enterprise-class features needed to integrate, manage, and automate a virtual datacenter at half the cost of other solutions.
