Citrix® XenServer® consolidates server workloads, which produces savings in power, cooling, and management costs, an increased ability to adapt to ever-changing IT environments, an optimized use of existing hardware, and an improved level of IT reliability.
Cuts IT costs by 50% or more.
While server consolidation is often the driving factor for server virtualization, organizations can reap rewards that extend far beyond shrinking their number of overall servers. XenServer® virtualization management tools can cut server requirements by up to 10 times. The consolidation of servers in a datacenter will result in lower power consumption and management costs while producing a more green IT environment.
With enhanced editions of CItrix® XenServer®, customers can also leverage advanced functions that enable a deep integration between physical and virtual resources and allow for more granular management virtual environments.
Scalable & dynamic memory.
XenServer® offers advanced management of server resources. Add or remove RAM & storage with a few clicks and a VM restart.
Minimizes server downtime.
XenServer® eliminates the need for planned downtime, reduces the impact of failures, and protects against disasters, creating an always available virtual infrastructure
Live VM snapshot & revert.
Capture both memory and disk state during a snapshot to speed system provisioning while also ensuring periodic backups.
Increases IT flexibility.
Virtualization enables companies to adapt to meet constantly evolving IT requirements. Servers can be created quickly and easily.
Enables easy upgrade of processing power by adding as many cores as available to a VM. As processors advance VM’s can be transitioned to new processors easily.
XenCenter multi-server management.
Citrix® XenCenter® provides all the VM monitoring, management, and general administration functions in a single interface including configuration, patch management, and virtual machine libraries. IT staff can easily manage hundreds of virtual machines from a centralized, highly available management console that installs on any Windows® desktop.
The Resilient Distributed Management Architecture distributes server management data across the servers in a resource pool to ensure that there is no single point of management failure. If a management server should fail, any other server in the pool can take over the management role.
Citrix® XenMotion® eliminates the need for planned downtime by enabling active virtual machines to be moved to a new host with no downtime.
Role-based administration improves security and enables delegated access, control, and usage of XenServer pools by maintaining a tiered access structure with permissions.
