Citrix has shot right up in prominence after the XenSource acquisition. There is an interesting article on “How Citrix’s CEO Made Citrix the ‘Madonna of the Virtualization World‘”. Citrix has also announced XenServer OEM agreements with HP and Dell. Yesterday Symantec made an announcement on the Veritas Virtual Infrastructure which has Citrix XenServer under the hoods.
With the use of Citrix XenServer growing, the upcoming launch of Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware being the current leader and Sun, Oracle also offering virtualization platforms, there will be multiple options for users when they need to make the choice of a virtualization platform.
At VMLogix, have always believed in the hyper-visor platform agnostic approach for virtual lab automation. We are the only virtual lab automation solution that supports Citrix XenServer and are observing a growing trend in terms of customers requesting for this support.
