In the scheme of the real world, Citrix Hypervisor is used much less than the other two main competing products; MS Hyper-V and VMWare vSphere. So, choosing Citrix Hypervisor for your organization comes down to whether you are comfortable going with a lesser-used product. All 3 products offer hardware layered hypervisor installation which means no OS overhead headaches. That is usually positive but in some cases, with very small shops, the OS layer is needed to host other workloads so Hyper-V running on Windows is the better choice. We run both MS Hyper-V and Citrix Hypervisor and we chose the Citrix product for our testbed environment since any risk of running the less public supported product was lessened by not being in full production.

I would say that Citrix Hypervisor is the precursor to all the other players. It's mature, and along with other Citrix services, provides services unique to this vendor. Citrix revolutionized these services making the XenServer available for free to everyone. I have chosen the Citrix Hypervisor based on previous experiences with all these other products.

VMware seems to be the standard and is more widely accepted. However, Citrix Hypervisor, is easily learned and cheaper. We have also used VirtualBox to offer up ideas for other free products. VirtualBox seems to be easier for end users who just want simple VMs and not necessarily entire environments. Citrix is good for environment virtualization.

The price is very good. Also, the support from the vendor in the process of implementation and maintenance is very important. Citrix offers this support. The implementation was easy, and gave us the ability to manage a large virtual infrastructure while reducing costs. The virtualization solution from Citrix offers more than other solutions had. Citrix is the best!

Feature for feature they are neck and neck. I have used Hyper-V 2012 and 2016, VMware ESXi and XenServer evenly. XenServer is a fast install, good documentation, with enterprise features out the box that compare or exceed what VMWare offered with a higher cost of entry.

There are other hypervisors that are more eficient than Xenserver, but it is necessary to spend some money to buy them. If your demand is to compute processing, Xenserver permits you to create good environments to do this. If you need to integrate the hypervisor with other software solutions and hardware, Hyper-V and VMware ESXi have better support.

I used vSphere (and vCenter server), Hyper-V, and XenServer to teach a virtualization class. vSphere is certainly the leader among these three, and Hyper-V is second (but not far behind). XenServer is third, which lacks many advanced features provided by vSphere and Hyper-V.

XenServer like the similar product I've used in the hypervisor market stacks up well in regards to compatibility with virtual machine [operating systems]. It is also capable of allowing for large, powerful VMs to be run upon it. The main selection of XenServer in environments I've worked within was due to the price and supportability it entailed. With a Citrix license of XenDesktop you get the XenServer license included which means direct price savings over competitors (added costs) and a support channel for issues.

XenServer is easier to use and cheaper than VMWare, but there is a bit less industry support. If your aren't afraid to use products from someone besides the market leader, XenServer is a great alternative to VMWare.
