My 5 cents : Go with Proxmox .
It is NOT just a wrapper for KVM, it has a lot of features that are not present in plain KVM .
It is extremely easy to set it up, you can have a 16 node cluster up and running in a single day of work !
Everything you need to manage your storage space, whatever it is, shared or centralized, CEPH, DRBD, iSCSI, NFS, ZFS or any other File System supported by Linux .
You even have some VDI oriented features .
The web interface are straightforward and very intuitive .
All of it with less than a half of the cost of XEN ( or a mere fraction of the cost of VMWare or HyperV )
I am using it for 10 years or so, since 2.2 version .
And, you can try it without any cost or vendor support, just download the image and install, use it for a month, if you thing that Proxmox do not have all the features you need, then go to something else. it won't hurt your budget .

It's easy, with the new version of XenServer you lose several features that you will need on production: https://xenserver.org/blog/entry/xenserver-7-3-changes-to-the-free-edition.html
Use Proxmox VE. :)
