Citrix: 10 Years of XenServer
0

It’s time for a party! This week marks the 10th anniversary of the first generally available release of XenServer, or XenEnterprise, as it was called back then.

The Xen hypervisor, which is the core of XenServer, became an open-source project in 2003, so has already had its 10th birthday party. In 2005, the creators of Xen started a company, XenSource, Inc., to provide commercial services and products around Xen. After a series of betas and preview releases, the first generally available product, XenEnterprise 3.0, was released in late August 2006. Why “3.0”? It was based on the Xen hypervisor 3.0.0 release – itself a landmark release in Xen’s history.

XenEnterprise 3.0 (codename “Burbank”) was very different from the XenServer we know today. First, it didn’t support Windows VMs – the technology required to do this efficiently, including Intel VT and AMD-V hardware virtualization technology, was only just becoming available at the time. Second, it was a single-server product with each server being managed individually rather than as part of a cluster as now. And, third, the user interface was a Java-based application, rather than the .NET one we have today.
