Citrix Hypervisor is quick to deploy and easy to manage.

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.

Citrix Hypervisor does a great job overall, such as the virtualization of the host. It's very easy to manage the virtual machine, to create, and configure high availability.

Installing Hypervisor is really simple. It's the simplest setup I've ever done before. We used a team to deploy it, and it doesn't take much time, like two or three hours tops.

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.

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.

One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is Proxmox VE vs XenServer  Which of these two solutions would you recommend for Server Virtualization Software? Why? Thanks!--Rhea

I would think a better comparison would be Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/rhev?tid=il-q) vs Proxmox VE. However, I don’t have any experience with either of these two products or XenServer, as we use VMware internally.

Vmware, then Hyper-V, then physical, because the other options are not enterprise worthy
