XenServer Take 5
Everyone, it seems, is trying to crash VMware's big VMworld party. Microsoft's
shenanigans this week are well-documented, but Citrix (also a pioneer in thin
client computing) made some noise, too -- right in VMware's back yard: Citrix
server virtualization tool XenServer 5.
Some have questioned Citrix's commitment to XenServer given that the company
is so close to Microsoft and such a fan of Hyper-V. Perhaps XenServer 5 will
help answer that question. New features focus on monitoring, disaster recovery
and more options for third-party programs.
Where do you see Xen going, and is Citrix truly committed? Send conjectures
