  • Transcript

    • 1. XenServer and OpenStackJohn Garbutt, Senior Software Developer, Citrix@johngarbutt27th September 2012
    • 2. But Citrix does CloudStack?… but still got 3 people full time on OpenStack
    • 3. Why use Xen?… because it was built for the Cloud!
    • 4. History of Xen
    • 5. We propose a system that can execute code suppliedby an untrusted user, yet can charge this user for allresources consumed by the computation. Suchservers could be deployed at strategic locationsthroughout the Internet Xenoservers: Accounted execution of untrusted code IEEE Hot Topics in Operating Systems VII March 1999
    • 6. Why use Xen today?• Open Source with a large community and ecosystem• Mature and “Cloud Proven” ᵒAmazon, Rackspace and many others• True Type 1 hypervisor ᵒReduced TCB ᵒBest security, isolation, performance, scalability mix• Probably 10-12 Million OpenSource Users ᵒe.g. 3 x people on Debian have used Xen in the last 30 days vs KVM ᵒ12% of Ubuntu Servers hosted on Xen
    • 7. “Type 1” vs “Type 2” Hypervisor
    • 8. What is XenAPI?
    • 9. Xen Terminology Xen = virtual machine monitor XenAPI = API to manage Xen XAPI = XenAPI deamon Dom0 = trusted management VM DomU = untrusted guest VM

    • 12. XenAPI with OpenStack?… it’s what Rackspace use!

    • 14. How can I get started?
    • 15. Getting Startedhttps://github.com/openstack-dev/devstack/blob/master/tools/xen Install XenServer Run DevStack
    • 16. Ideas for the Future… help us choose and help us code?
    • 17. Even Better IsolationLook at Citrix XenClient XT
    • 18. Where can I find out more?
    • 19. Further Reading• http://wiki.openstack.org/XenServer• http://wiki.openstack.org/HypervisorSupportMatrix• http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-compute/admin/content/introduction- to-xen.html• http://wiki.xen.org
