Likewise Open Now Integrated in Citrix XenServer
The integration of Likewise Open with Citrix XenServer now enables IT administrators to protect information and data from unauthorized access -- and ensures that virtual servers have the same levels of security as physical servers.


Likewise, the leader in open source audit and authentication for mixed networks -- provides identity management solutions that improve security and operational efficiencies by integrating Linux, Unix and Mac systems with Microsoft Active Directory.


"Likewise has become the benchmark for how large enterprises authenticate and control Linux and Mac systems using Microsoft Active Directory," said Krishna Ganugapati, vice president of engineering, Likewise Software. "With Citrix’s adoption and integration of Likewise into XenServer, their customers will be able to fully integrate virtual servers into their Windows architecture."


Citrix XenServer provides customers with a robust, scalable, feature-rich virtualization platform that is exceptionally powerful, yet incredibly easy to learn and use -- creating a flexible, aggregated pool of computing resources by virtualizing application workloads across any number of servers in the datacenter.


"The combination of Citrix XenServer virtualization software with Likewise Open authentication software gives users integrated enterprise control over access to information -- the most important asset in the organization," said Benn Schreiber, director of business development at Citrix Systems. "It's critical to provision users, applications and computing resources so that our virtualization technology has the same high levels of security as actual physical hardware."


XenServer software with Likewise Open is scheduled to be available in June 2009.
