The following Citrix virtualization white paper discusses how Citrix XenServer provides simple, economical server virtualization designed for easy implementation in any IT  environment. From the simplicity of "10 Minutes to Xen" installation to a full range of complementary, best-of-breed solutions from independent solution providers, Citrix XenServer offers innovative, cost-effective solutions for application availability, business continuity, rapid provisioning, and end-to-end visibility and management across virtual and physical environments.

Adoption of virtualization is concentrated among large enterprises, while adoption by mid-sized companies has been much slower.  For these companies, enterprise-focused virtualization solutions often present barriers including:

  • fragmentation between new, virtualization-ready operating systems and legacy platforms running mission-critical applications
  • application performance constrained by storage and network I/O on virtualized servers
  • server and storage constraints imposed by virtualization platform providers
  • security and resiliency concerns raised when multiple critical applications run on the same hardware
  • implementation hurdles created by complex interdependencies and demanding installation protocols
  • vendor lock-in issues, raising pricing and support risks many companies prefer to avoid
  • application delivery constraints imposed at virtual/physical boundaries
