Citrix Hypervisor Valuable Features

Anthony Musaluke - PeerSpot reviewer
Chief Operating Officer at Centre for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia (CIDRZ)

The feature that is most valuable to us is the XenMotion (live migration) feature. It is critical for us, especially when doing maintenance work. That is a must-have feature. Also Storage XenMotion. The ability to move a VM while it is still running and continue doing maintenance on that is a big advantage.

It is quite flexible and rugged. It is also easy to understand and user-friendly. It is not as complicated as some of the other solutions. It has its technicalities, but it is easy to understand. You can easily pick up in a short period of time and understand how to manage the infrastructure.

Citrix Hypervisor integrates easily and I can manage the infrastructure better. If I need to take a machine down to expand the hard drive, I do not have to physically be here. I do not need to order new equipment or new hard drives. I can shut it down, increase the drive space and bring it back up. I find that hypervisor updates are extremely easy to do.

What I find most valuable in Citrix Hypervisor is its licensing policy, because you'll get it for free if you buy a Citrix XenDesktop license. You don't need to spend additional money on the Citrix Hypervisor because you can manage both the Citrix XenDesktop and the Citrix Hypervisor with just one license, so you can save on cost.

I also like that the solution is good support-wise. Hardware support is also faster compared to other solutions.

The most valuable features are being able to host many virtual machines and being able to patch machines. For example, have a primary and secondary machine and being able to put the user on one machine and patch up the other one and rotate.

The online support material is great. Citrix has the more complete online material.

The product is more inclusive than other options, which is nice. 

It's not as complex as other options. It's easier to use.

The onboarding process is pretty straightforward. 

The product is a great option for enterprise-level organizations.

The solution offers a wide array of compatibility with, for example, some image files of other systems, and can be virtualized using another solution. The Citrix Hypervisor has a larger range of compatibility.

Citrix allows you to move your virtual machines from one host to the other, with the host geographical prefix. I think that's an awesome feature. We can access infographics and manuals, and communicate easily with each other. Great security features.

The continued uptime of our virtual machines is good. If there's a problem with one host, the machines get migrated off. This is something that works well.
