A a few weeks after Microsoft’s claim that Hyper-V conquered 24% of the market share. Citrix announced that more than 10% of Global Fortune 500 companies have downloaded and activated XenServer virtualization platform for production use in the last four months. By providing a free, full-featured alternative that dramatically lowers the entry price of virtualization, Citrix has saved companies of all sizes millions of dollars and provided compelling value to IT organizations as they face shrinking budgets.
