We just got back from the Citrix virtualization seminar in Washington D.C. The seminar was very informative with live demos of their products. They pretty much covered all their virtualization products and how they work together: XenApp (application virtualization), XenDesktop (desktop virtualization), and XenServer (server virtualization). They also had three of their customers come in to share their experiences with Citrix virtualization technologies.
Now for the free stuff. Attendees received a small bag (man purse?), a notepad, a pen, and a 1GB flash drive. Citrix XenServer is also now free with XenMotion (live migration) and XenCenter (let’s see how VMware responds to this).
