A quick check makes sure that XenServer is open source and not commercial.



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.


Maybe that helps.
