Im using it for about 5years now. 
I started with the original Citrix XenServer at 4.x 
I did use DebianXen before that and after Citrix changed course with XenServer 6.5-7. 
Xen server (XCP-NG free) emerged, im using since then and im very happy with it. 

And what you can do now is.. 
- setup XenServer. 
- import the fileserver info XenServer as VM. 

My setup is like this. 

Xen1 - VM-DC1
Xen2 - VM-DC2
Xen3 - VM-DC3

And depending on load ( in above setup there are about 12-15 servers running ), I move them around. 
With these 3 servers im using, 2 XenServer can hold, if needed when you have hardware maintenance, 
all vms of the 3 XenServer. 
Keeps things flexible.
