Article after article and post after post have compared and contrasted Xen, VMWare, Veridian, and a host of other virtualization technologies, with opinions on performance, management tools, implementations, etc., etc. in abundant supply. Inevitably when it comes to Xen, the story comes full circle with some sort of declaration about "data center readiness." The definition of "ready for the data center" is quite subjective, of course, based largely on the author's personal experience, skills, and their opinion of the technical capabilities of those managing this vague "data center" to which they are referring.
