I believe that now everyone is continuing this amazing journey into the Citrix world. Hope as the products are getting explored one by one, like the XenApp, XenDesktop, XenMobile, it is creating an immersive experience for us into this tech-world.
It’s time to continue now. So, let us move further with our exploration and know more about XenServer, the other product from the Citrix family.
XenServer is a hypervisor platform released by Citrix systems. It enables the creation and management of virtualized server infrastructure.
In brief, it is the virtualization management platform that is optimized for desktop, application, and, the server virtualization infrastructures. It is used to host, deploy, and manage the virtual machines; distribute the CPU, networking, storage, and memory to the virtual machines, and thus meets the data center challenges of today’s business.
Cloud-ready: When you think of cloud and its solutions, Citrix is the go-to-vendor platform. Mention not to say, XenServer is cloud-ready especially designed for the horizontal scale and cloud-scale simplicity, performance, and, security.
As it is a cloud-proven virtualization platform, it is used in the majority of cloud orchestration platforms which includes Apache CloudStack, OpenStack, and, the Cloud platform.
The resilient architecture enables the cloud builders to cluster the hosts easily without any additional configuration or complexity.
As it scales up to 800 VLANs per pool, it provides the adequate isolation between the virtual machines and the users for a multi-tenant cloud environment.
It is an open source project and part of the Linux Foundation as the Xen Project under a GPLv2 license.
High-performance virtual infrastructure: The infrastructure comes with a 64-bit hypervisor that has migrations live, host and virtual machines management at the centralized level, and has a set of tools for the quick running of virtual environments.
Datacenter automation: XenServer increases the performance of the server, reduces the power consumption, maintains the disaster recovery plan, and streamlines critical tasks.
Advanced Integration and Management: The physical and virtual resources are integrated and as such facilitates the integration of storage, enable rapid provisioning, tiered access to VMs and granular management of the environment.
XenServer makes use of several software components. They include the Xen Hypervisor.
Xen Hypervisor: It is the hypervisor that uses the microkernel design and provides the services facilitating the multiple computer operating systems so that it is executed concurrently on the computer hardware.
In addition to Xen hypervisor, it possesses the following:
XENIUM, the technology-centric developer is also the operator for complex websites, web applications, portals, and e-commerce solutions.
“We saw server virtualization offering us several benefits,” explained Wojciech Kowasz, chief systems engineer at XENIUM. “Not only did it have the promise of reducing costs and complexity, but with features such as live migration we could also begin to work toward having our sites and services be more dynamic, more resilient—all without the need for operator intervention.”
XENIUM witnessed everything they desired for after deploying XenServer environment.
Obviously, there is no deviation in the conclusion that is anything different from our previous posts regarding Citrix products. Today’s businesses are in need of virtualization solutions and XenServer gives the much-needed flexibility and performance in order to meet the IT needs.
It is recommended to deploy XenServer for/to
