Description Citrix is a provider of application-accelerations products, virtual desktop tools and the open-source XenServer hypervisor, as well as a big contributor to open cloud efforts.
GigaOM’s Take Citrix plays an important role in bringing openness to cloud computing. Its XenServer hypervisor provides a worthy alternative to VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, and is the foundation of the Rackspace Cloud. Citrix is also an early OpenStack supporter and sells a set of products called OpenCloud, which enable hybrid cloud environments.
