PALO ALTO, Calif. -- XenSource, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise-class virtualization solutions based on the high-performance open source Xen virtualization platform, today announced the newest version of its flagship commercial product line, XenEnterprise v4. This release marks a significant milestone in the companys transition from a next-generation technology leader, to a provider of comprehensive enterprise-class virtualization solutions. XenEnterprise v4 delivers a complete and simplified model for virtualization deployment and use, and the new enterprise-class capabilities will enable enterprises to take full advantage of the solution’s high performance, ease of use and advanced virtualization management capabilities. XenEnterprise v4 packaging and pricing is specifically designed for easy, simple and cost-effective use on every server in the enterprise.

New advanced management features in v4 include XenMotion™ for live migration of running virtual machines; XenCenter™, a scalable, resilient virtual infrastructure management solution with an easy to use Windows user interface; a powerful 64-bit hypervisor that supports both 32- and 64-bit enterprise workloads; and, an open, standards-based XenAPI which enables ISVs and OEMs to develop add-on solutions for XenEnterprise v4. This release includes version 3.1 of the Xen open source hypervisor “engine” and leverages the latest hardware virtualization support features from Intel and AMD to deliver near bare metal performance.
