Citrix: I Can Manage Citrix XenServer with vCenter? Yes, You Really Can!
Let’s face it, while many customers who deploy XenApp and XenDesktop as their app and desktop virtualization platforms of choice do so on XenServer, there are others still running vSphere as their hypervisor.
If you are currently running your XenApp and XenDesktop deployments on vSphere, not only are you missing out on the unique integrations the full Citrix stack offers, but you’re overpaying (to the tune of $136/desktop over three years). Take advantage of your entitlement to XenServer Enterprise, which is included in every edition of XenApp and XenDesktop. The savings could be used for other IT initiatives, or your vSphere licenses repurposed to run other workloads.
Now, with the launch of HotLink’s Hybrid Express for Citrix, you can simplify the management of XenServer hosts and VMs by using your existing VMware vCenter management console.
With HotLink, XenServer resources are managed side-by-side with vSphere resources, with all the same vCenter administration and management features and functions. For example, you can execute vCenter management tasks on XenServer hosts, such as cloning, taking snapshots, and migrating VMs. You can seamlessly migrate from vSphere to XenServer with integrated and automated VM conversion. You can even provision XenServer workloads from existing VMware templates and utilize your current tools and workflows cross-platform.
