Citrix Hypervisor (formerly Citrix XenServer) is a Current Release (CR). Current Release versions of XenServer are designed to provide new features to users as quickly as possible. For customers more focused on long-term stability, you may want to stick with the LTSR (currently 7.1).
Citrix Hypervisor is available in three editions:
We are pleased to announce that Alike v6 (A2) has been tested to be 100% compatible with Citrix Hypervisor 8.0. As always, we ensure that Alike fully supports each new release of XenServer through collaborating with Citrix. We have been Citrix Ready certified since 2010. As XenServer experts, we take pride in offering the #1 backup solution for XenServer, or should we Citrix Hypervisor.
Note: All Citrix Hypervisor 8.0 features are available to all licensed Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (formerly XenApp and XenDesktop) customers.
Dom0 has been updated in 8.0
Also note that dom0’s memory requirements/allocation have changed.
