Citrix has decided to open source XenServer, its free server virtualization hypervisor, as part of its new Xen Cloud Project.

Citrix's open source decision will help the company gain market share and drive revenue for its Citrix Essentials management software, Crosby says. He also responds to critics who say that Citrix is conceding the server virtualization market to VMware and Microsoft by making XenServer free and open source, and he answers a listener's question about future XenServer features.

This podcast also features news about Xen hypervisor users who choose not to go with VMware or Microsoft, in addition to the interview with Simon Crosby. Learn about their reasons for selecting Xen hypervisors, and whether or not Xen could be the right hypervisor for your business or organization.
