In the company’s own words, what is it?  XenSource plays the dual role of leading the open source Xen™ community, while simultaneously selling value-added enterprise solutions based on Xen technology. Founded and run by the original Xen development team, XenSource is committed to nurturing and growing the Xen community, and dedicates a significant amount of its own engineering resources to developing open source technology to maintain the Xen hypervisor’s position as the world’s fastest and most secure hypervisor.

In addition to its open source efforts, XenSource develops, markets, and sells value-added solutions and services based on the Xen hypervisor, including enterprise grade virtualization infrastructure solutions. These solutions allow enterprises to realize the TCO savings that result from increased server utilization, server consolidation, and reduced complexity in the data center.

XenSource is backed by leading venture capital firms, including Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Sevin Rosen Funds, Accel Partners, and New Enterprise Associates. XenSource is based in Palo Alto, California.

Outside quote about company:  “We were looking for a virtualization solution that offered high performance and was easy to use,” said Chris Rogers, president of ServerCave, Inc., an Internet hosting and consulting firm based in Herndon, Virginia. “With XenEnterprise, we were quickly up and running on our IBM server. We have found it to be easy to manage and dependable.”
