Citrix Xen 5.0 or Vmware ESX 3.5
Posted on 2008-11-11
I have been askiing few Vmware questions in the past to virtualise our servers (4 servers in total with redundancy) and got really good answers. I found out Citrix xen 5.0 server yesterday and getting quite intimidated with the price and features.
Since we are in the initial stage of getting the hardware for the Virtualisation project, I would like to know from experts, which platform you recommend?
What I have seen from Ctirix and several other forums is 'Xen server 5.0 have new improved features and priced based on per server NOT per processor and the performance is great.
The price at the moment we are looking from Vmware for 2 server with dual core processors +VC licese is around $7500.
What do you recommend experts? We are lookiing for a business class virtualisation with High availiabilty and redundancy.
