Citrix optimises Xen server virtualisation offering

Citrix Systems has unveiled Citrix XenServer 4.1 and Citrix XenServer Platinum Edition, the first new releases to its server virtualisation product line since completing the acquisition of XenSource last quarter.

XenServer is targeted at the needs for both virtual and physical servers. With fewer than 15% of all corporate servers expected to be virtualised by 2012, the ability to dynamically provision virtual application workloads across servers in the datacentre provides an advantage for XenServer customers, said Citrix.

The XenServer release also adds more than 50 new enhancements, improving the product's ease of use, performance and increasing support for enterprise storage systems, Citrix said.

In addition, XenServer adds optimisation for Citrix XenApp (the new name for the Citrix Presentation Server), ensuring customers a scalable, high-performance system for Windows application delivery running in a virtualised environment, said the supplier.
