Citrix will release in next version of XenServer a cool long waited feature “overcommitted memory”. The beta will be out in march 2010.
Bill Carovano from Citrix informs on a forum:
Stay tuned…it would be great to get feedback from those of you wanting “overcommitted memory” features, after we release the beta of the next XenServer / Essentials for XenServer release.
While legally I have to preface this statement with “this is not a guarantee, and no purchase decisions should be made on the basis of this statement” we should have something ready for beta testing in the March 2010 timeframe.
Check back on XenServer Central in mid February for some more information.
