With Citrix’s acquisition of virtualization provider XenSource and the release of XenSource v4.0 the DABCC-TV staff thought it would be time to give everyone a technical walkthrough of Citrix’s new virtualization solution, XenServer Enterprise v4.   In this DABCC-TV video, host Douglas Brown and XenSource Certified Engineer Chas Setchell walks you through the XenSource XenCenter management console with the goal of showing you 1) how easy it is to use and 2) some of the new features found in Citrix XenSource Enterprise v4.0.  Doug and Chas will also discuss and demo such features as a deep technical dive in to the XenCenter management tool,  how to create a Virtual Machine in XenCenter and of course we they will show off XenMotion!
