    Citrix XenServer Enterprise including XenMotion now Free + for Hyper V!

    Citrix XenServer
    Enterprise-class. Cloud-proven. Free.

    Citrix XenServer™ is the only enterprise-class, cloud-proven virtualization platform that delivers the critical features of live migration and centralized multi-server management at no cost. XenServer is an open and powerful server virtualization solution that radically reduces datacenter costs by transforming static and complex datacenter environments into more dynamic, easy to manage IT service delivery centers.

    By providing features like live migration, shared storage support, centralized multi-server management plus P2V and V2V conversion tools in the free version, XenServer enables any organization, no matter the size or budget, to immediately benefit from the power of server virtualization.

    Just FYI, when you get to the download stage this is what you are told before you download the current software:

    The new free Citrix XenServer will be available on March 25.
    You can get started right now, by downloading this software and applying this license key, which will enable the features of Citrix XenServer, PLUS two key features of the upcoming Citrix Essentials for XenServer:

    * High availability
    * StorageLink technology for NetApp and Dell EqualLogic

    You’ll be able to update your software when the new free XenServer is available by applying a simple update file – and continue to use your virtual machines and XenCenter management sessions.
