We're mainly interested in reducing Server footprint.  However, we're
also interested in disaster recovery capabilities (Vmotion, etc).
It'd also be great to build test servers on Virtual servers for testing
new applications.
On this particular farm, I have 7 PS 4.5 servers with about 30 users

        It depends.  What kind of workloads are the Citrix server
performing?  What are your goals for moving to a virtual environment
(what do you hope to achieve?)




        Most, if not all, of our new consulting projects all run on
XenServer or VMware.

        Hi all, 
        My boss would like to explore the idea of converting all our
Citrix PS 4.5 (Windows 2003) servers to Virtual Servers (VMWare).

        Now, I know VMWare is great, but I'm a little concerned about
moving all the Citrix servers to VMWare. 
        I was wondering if anyone out there is already doing this. 

        I prefer the idea of moving some Citrix servers to VMWare, but
not all. 

        Does anyone have see any problems with this besides the obvious
hardware failures?
