The Citrix XenServer engineering team has been hard at work on the next major release of the product, codenamed “Midnight Ride.” A public beta release is anticipated in mid-March 2010.
Some of the new capabilities in the beta release include:
Of these features there is in particular the “Dynamic Memory Control & Overcommit” that will give XenServer a long awaited feature, which their main competitor VMware have had for a good time now. With this feature in place, and the fact that XenServer is FREE, that is a killer feature which I think will get many to rethink their virtualization platform.
Also, the enhanced snapshots feature will be a cool thing, and I can say, it is!
