Cimex Media chooses XenSource for Virtualization

Xensource is gaining ground.

Cimex tested competing server virtualization solutions from VMware, but decided on XenEnterprise because of its performance, comprehensive feature set, and affordable price. The initial savings that Cimex has experienced with XenEnterprise has come as a result of a reduction in the number of servers needed for any given project.

"XenEnterprise has saved us a lot of time and money," said Peter Murray, systems manager at Cimex Media UK. "For a recent client, we only had to buy two servers rather than ten. That's a huge savings for us. XenEnterprise also offers us easier server management, more time for QA, and a streamlined R&D process. We're passing these benefits onto clients by getting their websites to them faster while having even more time to test them before going live."
