  • We use the free version to host a small test bed of virtual boxes. Not having to pay for a solution is a great benefit.
  • We are a Citrix shop (Xenapp/Virtual apps) so having another Citrix product is not an issue for our technical skill set.
  • The ability to live migrate servers between nodes allows us to do patching without downtime. This feature is a great benefit to both lower user notifications and IT off hours time.

  • The best positive impact XenServer had on our business was the fact we didn't have to purchase a room full of physical servers to handle our workloads. This alone saved us thousands of dollars on hardware and software purchases, the cooling cost went down, power cost went down and management for the environment was centralized and easier to maintain.

  • Xenserver is easy to learn. We paid for support only for installation and deployment in the first three years, and now our team has the knowledge to solve most problems.
  • Low CAPEX if you have a team that uses open source software day by day.
  • But paid support is necessary to solve critical problems. The open source community is not enough. Actually, we have difficulty solving some bugs without paying for support.
  • Medium OPEX if you have a team that uses open source software day by day.

  • Positively, the ability to implement a XenServer pool for VDI workloads is a fast process. Thus a faster project getting into the pilot phase.
  • Negatively, XenServer has caused outages at client sites due to the pool master failing and a subsequent member not taking over properly (VDI).
  • Negatively, XenServer has failed to allow easy addition of storage or expansion to a SAN drive which required an outage to occur in order to properly see the new free space for growth.
