Citrix Hypervisor Review

A cost-effective solution for creating VM templates from snapshots, and vice-versa

What is our primary use case?

I use XenServer to migrate all the old servers of my clients. I think it is a robust, proven and free option.

How has it helped my organization?

I find it very easy to manage and at a cost that small customers would never refuse (free).

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the possibility of creating virtual machine templates from a snapshot and vice versa. It saves me many hours of work.

What needs improvement?

I would like the possibility of updating the hypervisor by applying security patches. In the free version, it is a bit annoying.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution since 2011.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
