Moshe Bar and Ian Pratt (XenSource)
Enterprise Grade Virtualization with Open Source Technologies
Virtualization is a new and hot item to the world of Linux and
Windows. There have been, however, virtualization technologies for
over 40 years starting with the IBM emulators for mainframes and
later with the CP67 and VM virtualizing operating systems.
Open Source operating systems like Linux offer the potential to make
virtualization fast, easy and a commodity by introducing the
required changes into the OS as part of the standard kernel. Fast
virtualization with a low overhead, furthermore makes it possible
for the first time to use it in production environments (rather than
just test and development).
Xen, the leading Open Source virtualization technology has quickly
become a standard adopted by many leading ISVs to build
comprehensive data center efficiency and management solutions. This
session will provide an overview of Xen and discuss best practices
for deploying it to achieve enterprise grade virtualization.
Xen was originally developed by the Systems Research Group at the
University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. Xen is Open Source
software, released under the terms of the GNU General Public
