Citrix Unveils XenServer 5

BOSTON -- Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS), the global leader in application delivery infrastructure, today announced Citrix XenServer™ 5, the next generation of its groundbreaking server virtualization product line. XenServer 5 overcomes the limitations and complexity of first-generation solutions with powerful new management capabilities and unprecedented ease-of-use that make datacenters more dynamic for customers of all sizes. Today’s release comes on the heels of new data showing XenServer gaining share in the rapidly-evolving server virtualization market1 less than one year after acquiring XenSource and the XenServer product line. XenServer is a key component of the Citrix Delivery Center™ product family, a comprehensive datacenter-to-desktop system that helps customers transform static datacenters into dynamic “delivery centers.” XenServer is also a growing force in the emerging cloud computing market and a key component of the new Citrix Cloud Center™ solution launched today (see today’s separate announcement).

“XenServer 5 is going to completely change the way a lot of people think about server virtualization,” said Lou Shipley, VP and General Manager, XenServer product group at Citrix Systems. “We are excited to see the growing momentum around XenServer as customers around the world begin to experience a more powerful, open, easy way to build dynamic datacenters.”
