An Interview With Simon Crosby, CTO of XenSource

By Andrew Conry-Murray, Network Computing, October 9, 2007

XenSource, which was recently acquired by Citrix, makes the open-source hypervisor XenExpress. It also licenses XenEnterprise, a feature-rich version of XenExpress that includes enhanced features such as live migration and a management console.

Simon Crosby, a founder and CTO of XenSource, is now officially CTO of Citrix's Virtualization and Management Division.

What is XenSource's strategy for competing with VMware?

VMware is ahead of all of us. But XenSource has unique gearing ratios to catch up. Xen is a community product so we get the benefit of that development ability, a rate of feature set development.
