XenSource founder outlines virtualization roadmap at INTEROP

"Unlike VMware, we have the platform building block for driving virtual machines with open (Application Program Interfaces) and an open management architecture. We have key partners like Symantec and Microsoft working with us in the space," said Crosby. With the completion of Citrix's acquisition of XenSource this week, the companies are offering two new products based on the Xen hypervisor, Citrix XenServer and Citrix XenDesktop. Citrix XenServer is the repackaged Xen hypervisor for creating virtual machines on servers. Crosby said there are currently 25,000 XenServers in production and 40 to 50 customers signing up each week.

The first industry deal came from Dell, which this week adopted the XenServer OEM Edition. Dell will provide the XenServer across Dell's PowerEdge server line in the coming year, introducing built-in, easy-to-use virtual machine installation and management to millions of global Dell customers.
