Using Citrix XenServer to Protect Virtual Servers

Citrix XenServer is an industry and value leading open source virtualization platform for managing cloud, server and desktop virtual infrastructures. Organizations of any size can install XenServer in less than ten minutes to virtualize even the most demanding workloads and automate management processes – increasing IT flexibility and agility and lowering costs. With a rich set of management and automation capabilities, a simple and affordable pricing model and optimizations for virtual desktop and cloud computing, XenServer is designed to optimize private datacenters and clouds today and in the future.

XenServer is designed with an agile, fully replicated architecture that implements a master/slave model, where any slave can become a master with no loss of functionality or configuration. This architecture enables cloud builders to cluster hosts without incurring any additional configuration or management complexity.

Citrix XenCenter Management

Citrix XenCenter provides all virtual machine monitoring, management and general administration functions through a single, intuitive interface. Citrix XenCenter is a highly available management architecture with no single point of failure, as it shares all management and configuration data across all servers in a resource pool without the need for a separate database.

High availability

Automatic restart capability allows IT teams to restart VMs if a failure occurs at the VM, hypervisor or server level, and to bond network interfaces for network redundancy. Auto restart helps protect virtualized applications and bring higher levels of availability to the business.

Site recovery

Create a site-to-site disaster recovery plan for virtual environments. Site recovery is easy to set up and fast to recover, and allows frequent testing to ensure disaster recovery plans remain valid.

VM snapshots

Create snapshots of VMs to capture disk and metadata settings for backups, archives and configuration changes.

Citrix XenMotion

Citrix XenMotion eliminates the need for planned downtime to perform hardware and software upgrades. It allows live, running VMs to be moved from one host to another within a resource pool with no application or service outage. Move live, running virtual machines and their associated virtual disks within and across resource pools, leveraging local and shared storage.
