    Citrix XenServer is the unique virtualization platform that can handle requests for enterprise, for example, allows live migration and centralized management of various servers. All in total safety, the important thing is that it is completely free.

    XenServer is a powerful solution for server virtualization that dramatically reduces data center operating costs, transforming the data center environments, typically complex and static, in centers for the performance of IT services, XenServer makes them more dynamic and easier to handle.The open source version of XenServer is available in the free version and the paid version. Xenserver the paid version has included the maintenance and product support.

    Citrix with XenServer wants to be an alternative to other products. Such as Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware vSphere, and KVM.


    Pros :

    • the new version has a licensing based on CPU socket, allows scaling up to 500 virtual machines and 4000 vCPUs per host, officially supports Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 and Windows 10, other similar products have a very high cost to manage socket.
    • A very useful feature of XenServer is XenMotion, which allows you to move virtual machines without downtime through XenCenter you can manage through interface virtualizing more servers, storage and networking. Another very important thing is native support for 64 -bit hypervisor.
    • XenServer integrates easily with external storage systems. Personally, I use it together with a snap storage, it is very stable, and I never had problems. It is a very complete product.

    Cons :

    • The virtual machine management on XenServer in some cases do not really like. For example, to move a virtual machine from one datastore to another I had to back up the metadata, it is very risky for IT administrators.
    • The only really convenient thing is the ability to move hot machines from one node to another and the ability to script the hosts (which you can not do with ESXi).

    Citrix XenServer is a wonderful virtualization platform that stands out from the many platforms on the market, especially because it is free. It supports several features such as, live migration, centralized management of multiple servers and multiple functionalities of popular platform virtualization.

    Pros :

    • Thanks to several features (live migration, shared storage support, centralized multi-server and tools for P2V and V2V conversion, that remember are all included in the free version) XenServer also allows smaller company to immediately obtain all benefits of server virtualization.
    • XenServer is proving a powerful solution for server virtualization that dramatically reduces data center management costs, through XenServer you can then transform the data center environments, typically static and complex, in centers for the delivery of IT services, the most dynamic and simple to manage.
    • Citrix XenServer currently is establishing itself more and more and is today a technology that provides functionality equal to or higher than those of the most popular solutions in the market, and although I am repetitive, it is free.
    • Again, XenServer also provides continuous improvements in performance, scalability and density for the public and private cloud, and the latest improved functionality to support desktop virtualization implementations and existing servers and not, for those customers who have yet to outline its strategy cloud.
    • Particular attention is focused on XenServer to migrate and also to avoid problems regarding the workload, that's why lately we are also specialized in cloud structure.
    • Using XenServer, Citrix would like to offer cloud capabilities with high capacity is in terms of storage both in terms of performance and number of virtual machines.
    • Many improvements have also been made to the platform Microsoft Windows 8 and Microsoft Windows 2012.
    • Good alert service, alerts and customized messaging by levels.

    Cons :

    • In terms of security no objection, in terms of the support, on Web you will find several forums and not a lot of documentation, but you must always remember that it is at no cost.
    • Unfortunately, XenServer is not only free but to have a kind of extra support also requires the paid version.
    • There are different types of prices depending on the number of machines or processors, why should you see in detail.
