Complete, cost-effective datacenter and server virtualization
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.
What is server virtualization?
Server virtualization is a proven technology that enables multiple virtual machines to run on a single physical server. Each virtual machine is completely isolated from other machines and is decoupled from the underlying host by a thin layer of software known as a hypervisor. This allows each virtual machine to 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.
The best choice for server virtualization and datacenter automation
XenServer is the enterprise-ready, cloud-proven virtualization platform that contains all the capabilities required to create and manage a virtual infrastructure. It is trusted by demanding organizations to run the most mission critical applications and used by the largest clouds. Start building your virtual infrastructure with free server virtualization software from Citrix or consolidate any size organization with the premium edition.
• Cuts energy costs. By reducing the number of physical servers required in the datacenter, organizations are able to save on their power and cooling costs.
• Increases IT agility and efficiency. Customers can easily adapt to changing datacenter and computing needs by dynamically flexing capacity, optimizing VM placement, and automating repetitive management tasks.
• Improves performance and user productivity. By enabling ‘zero downtime’ maintenance, automatically recovering from hardware failure, and providing failover capabilities in disaster situations, end users are ensured access to mission critical application in all scenarios.
The free edition of XenServer starts with a 64-bit hypervisor and centralized management, live migration, and conversion tools to create a virtual platform that maximizes guest density and performance. The premium editions of XenServer extend the platform to enable organizations of any size to integrate and automate management processes, delivering a virtual datacenter solution.
Versatile open-source virtualization
From managing infrastructure to optimizing on-going IT operations, and from automating key processes through to delivering IT services, XenServer has the capabilities that fit any organizations IT requirements and enable businesses to transform their datacenters into IT delivery centers.
Utilize XenServer to streamline critical tasks and maintain a manageable disaster recovery plan. Also, increase server performance while reducing power consumption and server requirements.
