File type: XenServer Backup File/SMART Notebook File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .xbk. Files with the file extension .xbk can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .xbk files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .xbk file?

There are two applications mainly associated with the .xbk file extension and one is the Citrix virtualization software wherein the .xbk files refers to backup files the software created. These files are used to store virtual server host configuration files so that it would be easy for users to restart and restore the application in case it bugs down. Even if these files are backup files for a virtual server host, it is not used for virtual machines that run on servers. Xencenter can be used to create these files and open them. Another application associated with the .xbk file extension is the Smart Notebook software, a program that allows users to easy create classroom lessons. The .xbk files used by this software are mostly images, diagrams, notes, videos and audio wherein they contribute a lot for the storage and distribution of classroom notes. Converting these files to the latest notebook format and exporting them to .HTML or .PDF files are possible as well.

Citrix XenServer

Citrix XenServer

Citrix XenServer is a server virtualization platform built in Xen hypervisor. The software functions for management of Windows and Linux virtual servers that provides server consolidation and business continuity. Server virtualization allows several virtual machines to run using only one physical server. Every virtual machine is in isolation and separated with hypervisor, an underlying host by a thin layer. Through this, machines can run using different operating systems and applications. The hypervisor enables live migration which allows guest clients to move while it is still running, from one physical server host to another. Citrix XenServer features a zero downtime maintenance in which it automatically recovers from hardware failure and provides failover capacity in case of disaster situations which ensures end user access to mission critical applications in all scenarios. The virtual infrastructure of the software includes a 64-bit hypervisor, centralized management console and a full component of tools that gets virtual environment up and running.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .xbk files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .xbk. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
