Citrix XenServer 5.0 good to go with Virtual Connect Flex-10

Citrix supports HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 enabled products Citrix recently updated their Hardware Compatibility Guides to reflect their support of Citrix XenServer 5.0 running on the HP BladeSystem G6 series of servers along with the NC532m and NC522m 10GbE Flex-10 mezzanine cards with HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 modules at full 10GbE link speed. With the growing need to reduce costs, while still improving flexibility to remain competitive, IT organizations can turn to HP and Citrix for their server and network consolidation and business continuity needs. Many of the newly released HP ProLiant G6 blades with the latest Intel and AMD processors feature integrated 10 gigabit Flex-10 Ethernet capability that provide maximum network throughput with 8 FlexNICs and can scale to support more virtual machines. With the addition of two NC532m or NC522m 10GbE Flex-10 mezzanine cards, up to 24 FlexNICs can be enabled on these latest G6 servers. The NC532m and NC522m cards can also be used to provide Virtual Connect Flex-10 capability with other HP BladeSystem servers. Ports on the G6 series of BL460c, BL680c, BL490c, and BL495c blade servers along with the NC532m and NC522m mezz cards are HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 enabled allowing bandwidth to be allocated and fine-tuned across the ports. Consider HP Virtual Connect Flex-10 and Citrix XenServer for your virtualization needs. The Citrix Hardware Compatibility Guide is available on their website
