"One key point Citrix would like you to know is that XenServer 6
is optimized for cloud computing and the 'Cloud Era.' In fact, the
cloud computing message is threaded throughout Citrix's
announcement, along with reminders that you can use XenServer 6
with Citrix's CloudStack cloud platform. Citrix acquired CloudStack
when it bought Cloud.com in July. Because of that, the company
decided to pull the Self-Service Manager feature, which was present
in the beta version of XenServer from XenServer 6. Right now,
CloudStack is great for public cloud service providers or Web 2.0
application companies, but it is not suitable for enterprises that
want to run a private cloud in-house in their data center,
according to Derek Slayton, Citrix's senior director of product
marketing for XenServer. Apparently, the Cloud Era doesn't include
private clouds, then. That's, ahem, surprising."
