We have supported various versions of Xen hypervisor since our 1.0 release in Nov 2009. Some of our large customers such as Zynga, KT, Tata, and Go Daddy all deploy Citrix technologies. We learned a lot about Citrix in the process. We firmly believe Citrix is the best positioned to succeed in cloud computing.

With the acquisition of, no other software company has the breadth and depth of technologies in cloud computing.
2.       Customers love Citrix products.  Citrix was born from the idea of unlocking applications from datacenters and employees from the office – creating new ways for people to work. From virtual desktops to online meetings, Citrix products are cloud-based services. It is no coincidence that Citrix emerges as a leader in cloud computing.
3.       Citrix is a great partner. Even a small company like was able to derive significant benefits from our partnership with Citrix. Citrix was always willing to work with us to drive common customer success. It did not matter when it times we appeared to be taking business away from another Citrix product. Citrix would support us if our product met customer’s needs better. This is why Citrix works with multiple hypervisors, multiple systems vendors, and multiple storage and networking technologies. Citrix will be successful in cloud computing because it can work effectively with ecosystems partners.
