LAS VEGAS -- Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS), the global leader in application delivery infrastructure, and Dell Inc. today announced a partnership to make server virtualization technology a reality for customers of all sizes. By offering Citrix XenServer OEM Edition across Dell’s PowerEdge server line in the coming year, the companies will bring built-in, easy-to-use virtual machine installation and management to millions of Dell customers worldwide.

“Our goal is to simplify IT for our customers. By integrating standards-based software such as XenServer on our server platforms, we’ll be able to remove the cost and complexity associated with virtualization technology-delivering choice and flexibility while making it ubiquitous for customers of all sizes,” said Rick Becker, vice president of solutions, Dell Product Group. “This is a simplified, business-ready solution where customers can install and manage virtual machines almost immediately upon start up, then easily upgrade to a broad, multi-server solution as soon as they are ready.”

"We are pleased to sign such a significant agreement with Dell. This agreement will leverage Dell's leadership in the server market, providing Citrix XenServer products with broad reach into the millions of Dell customers worldwide," said Frank Artale, vice president of business development for Citrix Systems. "Helping customers achieve ten minutes to Xen has been our goal from the beginning, and an embedded hypervisor helps further simplify virtualization by allowing customers to work with their existing server vendors and providing them with a frictionless experience."
