Citrix XenServer revenue falls short of goal: News in brief

Citrix XenServer license revenue increased last quarter, but not by enough to meet the company's goal for 2008.

Citrix XenServer revenue falls short
XenServer, the bare-metal hypervisor Citrix got when it bought XenSource for $500 million in 2007, netted the company $9 million in license revenue last quarter, an increase of 40% over the previous quarter. But revenue for the year fell well short of the $25 million goal the company had set, according to virtualization.sys-con.com. Combined with XenDesktop, its desktop virtualization suite, revenue for the year was $48.6 million, or 3.1% of the company's $1.58 billion in sales, InformationWeek reported.

CiRBA updates capacity planning
CiRBA has added new dashboards and functionality to its eponymous capacity planning tool. The CiRBA 5.1 release adds a new Capacity Status report that lets administrators know their capacity health at a glance, while a Pending Optimization report alerts stakeholders across the organization to upcoming system changes. CiRBA also "componentized" its user interface (UI), giving administrators the ability to customize their dashboards, or to integrate components into outside Web portals.
