Is there any Xen alternative for VMware Infrastructure?

Any aggregation and control interfaces?

You can check ganeti from google.

Ganeti is a cluster virtual server management software tool built on top of existing virtualization technologies such as Xen or KVM and other Open Source software.

Next you my check:

Eucalyptus Management

Next to try:

DTC Xen Tycoon Hyperic - its like nagios Bixdata programs

Some of them are only console management but some have nice GUI. Maybe one from them will be useful for you. Sorry, I can post only one link :(

DTC XEN is the best tool I've ever seen! Provisioning (Data/IP) creation, restart .... nearly everything is supported! THX! For anyone interested: gplhost.com/software-dtc-xen_2-features.html –  Martin K. Jul 20 '09 at 19:28

If you want to go the open source route, you have Convirt and Enomalism

If you go the Citrix way, you have the XenCenter which looks very much like VMWare infrastructure. If you need entreprise level features, this is what you really should be using.

I agree. I've used both VMWare Infrastructure and XenCenter and Citrix XenCenter is a great alternative. Both (XenCenter/XenServer) are free but if you want to add more features there are additional costs. –  osij2is Jul 20 '09 at 2:28
