Fueled by the strong leadership and rapid adoption of open source Xen technologies, 1&1 Internet has strategically adopted Citrix technology for its public cloud computing solution. Citrix XenServer is now powering cloud services for four out of five of the world’s largest hosting providers.
With 11 million customers supported by five highly secure green data centers across Europe and the U.S., 1&1 Internet selected XenServer to provide a flexible infrastructure from which to launch its public cloud services.
