Citrix plan to add lifecycle management capabilities to the Citrix OpenCloud platform.

Citrix Systems have announced that they have signed a definitive
agreement to acquire virtualisation management provider
VMLogix.

The acquisition will bring new lifecycle management capabilities
to the Citrix OpenCloud platform, and will allow Citrix to add a
new self-service interface to its XenServer virtualisation
platform. Several of these new OpenCloud capabilities will be
included in the next release of the free Citrix XenServer
virtualisation platform.

The acquisition of VMLogix is expected to close in the third
quarter of 2010.

Citrix have also announced they will integrate the Citrix
OpenCloud infrastructure platform with the open source OpenStack,
which it is co-developing with Rackspace and Dell, among
others.
