A quick check makes sure that XenServer is open source and not commercial. http://xenserver.org. [quote] ABOUT XENSERVER XenServer is the leading open source virtualization platform, powered by the Xen Project hypervisor <http://xenproject.org/developers/teams/hypervisor.html> and the XAPI toolstack <http://xenproject.org/developers/teams/xapi.html>. It is used in the world's largest clouds and enterprises. Commercial support for XenServer <https://xenserver.org/get-support.html> is available from Citrix. [/quote] [snip] Maybe that helps.
