今天,Citrix官方宣布以企业赞助商身份加入OpenStack基金会。CloudStack大东家Citrix的加盟,意味着老牌劲旅CloudStack与新贵OpenStack的开源云战争结束!曾几何时,业界开源云的两大主要竞争势力CloudStack与OpenStack纠缠多年,孰优孰劣的对比也给厂商和客户带来了多年选择性障碍。OpenStack一边倒的社区繁荣度,再加上Citrix的二进宫扮演了压在CloudStack上最后一根稻草的角色。


SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Today, Citrix announced that it has become a Corporate Sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation. By joining the foundation’s community of contributors, Citrix demonstrates its continued commitment towards driving interoperability among standards-based cloud platforms and meeting the increasing demand for choice and flexibility in private, public and hybrid cloud solutions. NetScaler™ and XenServer™ solutions from Citrix are used as core infrastructure for some of the largest cloud infrastructure providers in the world, and this announcement brings the power of these products to customers choosing to build their clouds on OpenStack.


As a leading provider of applications, mobility, networking and cloud services, Citrix has a long history in helping to define standards across the industry and accelerate broad adoption of open source cloud projects.
