Citrix XenServer Makes the Grade with the Burton Group

The Burton Group recently completed a certification review of Citrix XenServer 5.5 with Citrix Essential 5.5 Platinum Edition

The Burton Group recently completed a certification review of Citrix XenServer 5.5 with Citrix Essential 5.5 Platinum Edition. After reviewing XenServer against extensive production-ready criteria (27 required features, 42 preferred features and 24 optional features—these guys are thorough!) the Burton Group team found that XenServer is enterprise-production ready.

Chris Wolf, virtualization expert and Senior Analyst at the Burton Group, said on his blog that “XenServer has demonstrated itself as a virtualization platform worthy of the demands of large scale enterprise environments.” He also found that XenServer meets the security, management, availability, storage, network, compute, scalability, and performance requirements typical of many enterprises.

You can read more about the Burton Group’s findings here, and they will also be presenting the complete criteria list at their Catalyst conference in a couple of weeks.

Congratulations to the Citrix XenServer team!
