Citrix XenServer Earns Top Quadrant in Analyst Report
Citrix Systems, Inc. announced that Citrix® has been listed as a “Champion” in Info-Tech Research Group’s Vendor Landscape report titled, “Select the Right Vendor for Server Virtualization; Enable Server Efficiency and Cost Savings from Consolidation to Internal Cloud.”
The report evaluated Citrix XenServer®, a key component of the company’s virtualization and cloud computing strategy, and placed Citrix as one of two vendors in the upper right Champion quadrant. Info-Tech defines Champions as “offering excellent value,” “having a strong market presence” and acting as “trend setters for the industry.”
“Citrix provides the most comprehensive all-around solution for the price,” said John Sloan, Lead Research Analyst, Info-Tech Research Group. “VMware, for many years, was the only server virtualization game in town, which allowed it to develop a healthy lead in features and functionality. However, over the last two years, Citrix and Microsoft have largely closed this gap in consolidation and management capabilities and are now moving development to the utility infrastructure. Look closely at Citrix as an alternative to VMware – it offers many of the same features as VMware with more flexibility and a lower price.”
