John Bara, XenSource's VP of Marketing, let me know that his organization has passed the thousand customer mark. Here's a segment of the message he sent.

XenSource, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise-class virtualization solutions based on the open source Xen® hypervisor, today announced that it signed its 1000th customer in Q3. The introduction of the feature-rich, high-performance XenEnterpriseTM v4 in August accelerated this growth, helping the company nearly double its customer base. New XenSource customers include ASIERUS, Carsdirect.com, Cornell University, McKesson, Miami Herald, Microsoft, Polycom, Postini, Raytheon and Sleek Networks. Additionally, XenServerTM and the freely available XenExpressTM also experienced record customer traction, with more than 25,000 downloads of XenExpress occurring in Q3.

When one considers the competitive environment, this is an impressive achievement. Do you agree?
