Citrix Systems has announced availability of the latest Citrix XenServer release, XenServer 5.6. As mentioned in the company's news release, the new release delivers additional features across the product line, enhancing the enterprise-ready, cloud-proven virtualization platform with all the capabilities needed to create and manage a virtual infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of competing products.

The company is offering a new new low-priced XenServer Advanced Edition or enterprise and cloud customers.

"The new XenServer 5.6 delivers enhanced virtualization management capabilities for both the free XenServer, as well as the more advanced Enterprise and Platinum editions. Citrix also introduced a new low-priced XenServer Advanced Edition, making it easier for enterprise and cloud customers running free XenServer to add more advanced high availability and management capabilities at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions.

"Citrix surprised many in the server virtualization industry last year when it unveiled an enterprise-ready, cloud-proven version of XenServer available at no cost, setting an entirely new standard for free virtualization with powerful features such as centralized multi-node management, multi-server resource sharing and full live migration. The move was part of a strategy to accelerate the rate of datacenter virtualization, monetizing more advanced virtualization management features only when customers are ready to expand their virtual datacenter deployments. Making the core XenServer product free also allowed Citrix to deliver advanced virtualization management solutions on top of both XenServer and Microsoft Hyper-V, the two fastest-growing virtualization platforms, each targeting unique customer segments."
