Citrix XenServer is a virtualization solution provided by Citrix Systems, which consolidates a physical server’s computing power into multiple virtual machines, each emulating a standalone server. Citrix XenServer supports Windows and Linux operating systems on guest server machines. Through its virtual machine monitoring component, Citrix XenServer manages the allocation and distribution of physical server compute resources among virtual machines and administers their performance and use.
Citrix XenCenter is the management console for XenServer and runs on Windows. This lets administrators configure new virtual machines and enables full virtual machine installation, configuration, administration, and lifecycle management.
