Xenserver giving VM-Ware a stiff challenge

Until this rollout, we have used the Free VM-Ware ESXi product. We wanted to test the attributes of the Open-Souce Xenserver. While there was a little of a learning curve, we really like some of the features in Xenserver. Specifically, there are no restrictions on CPU counts or RAM levels.

Excellent product and experience some bugs during implementation but that is to be expected

Services run great when you have key relationships first.

Challenges with 3rd party integrater along the way. Vendor was key in managing this relationship. They really stood up. This technology was changing constantly so it was key to have a close relationship with key vendor relationships.

Implementation was easy

Very knowledgeable team, willing to assist with any/all issue. There is still a few minor issues which we are addressing.

Xen App on Xen Server, the combo can't be beaten!

When used as a virtualization platform for Xen App, Xen server cannot be beaten.

Transitioning from an older Citrix farm may be difficult, but it is worth it in the end.

Citrix is a great way to stream apps right to users’ desktops, keeping the apps local and steady.

XenServer

Good enough for dev/test infrastructures.

In environments where cost is the primary factor, this can be a decent decision. There need to be many controls put into place to ensure functionality remains acceptable. Major design flaw where management of overall cluster is maintained from within the cluster, unlike other vendors in the market which have hosts external to the cluster for maintaining overall health. If the host that is responsible for managing the cluster fails, it will cause the entire cluster to be restarted, potentially causing production outages.

XenServer

Provided a long term, flexible desktop environment which would support the organisation.

Implementation and change management are complex. Costs are quite high. Project requires long term vision and lots of planning.
