Xen Server is optimized for both Windows and Linux virtual servers.

Xen Server runs directly on server hardware without requiring an underlying operating system, which results in an efficient and scalable system.

Xen Server works by abstracting elements from the physical machine (such as hard drives, resources and ports) and allocating them to the running on it.

A virtual machine (VM) is a computer composed entirely of software that can run its own operating system and applications as if it were a physical computer.

A VM behaves exactly like a physical computer and contains its own virtual (software-based) CPU, RAM, hard disk and network interface card (NIC).

Xen Server lets you create VMs, take VM disk snapshots and manage VM workloads.

For a comprehensive list of major Xen Server features, visit Xen Center allows you to manage Xen Server hosts, pools and shared storage, and to deploy, manage and monitor VMs from your Windows desktop machine.
