It is no accident that Xen software powers some of the largest Clouds in existence. From its outset, the Xen Project was intended to enable what we now call Cloud Computing. This session will explore how the Xen Architecture addresses the needs of the Cloud in ways which facilitate security, throughput, and agility. It will also cover some of the hot new developments of the Xen Project.

  • Lars Kurth Community Manger, Xen Project Chairman, Xen Project Advisory Board Director, Open Source, Citrix lars_kurth
  • Was a contributor to various projects Worked in parallel computing, tools, mobile and now virtualization Long history in change projects Community guy at Symbian Foundation Learned how NOT to do stuff Community guy for the Xen Project Working for Citrix Accountable to Xen Project Advisory Board Chairman of Xen Project Advisory Board
  • Stability is Paramount Value of IT: consistent service availability Service capacity specified a year or more in advance What’s up, stays up Change is Bad Change to status quo is disruptive and dangerous
  • Availability of Services is Paramount Value of IT: consistent service availability matching dynamic business demand Service capacity must move with business needs What’s up when depends on what’s needed when Change is Good Services must change to cover the needs of the moment Lack of change = lack of value
  • It must be stable It must be secure It must be configurable on a large scale It must take orchestration It must be multi-tenant
  • An Open Source Hypervisor > 10M Users Powering some of the biggest Clouds in Production Amazon Web Services, Rackspace Public Cloud, Terremark, … Several sub-projects Xen Hypervisor, XAPI management tools, Mirage OS Linux Foundation Collaborative Project Sponsored by Amazon Web Services, AMD, Bromium, Calxeda, CA Technologies, Cisco, Citrix, Google, Intel, NetApp, Oracle, Samsung and Verizon 10 years old

  • Not on Feature and Quality parity yet Significant progress in Havanah / 13.2 Xen and XAPI not perceived to be Open Source This is now different Citrix backing of Apache CloudStack Created “confusion” in the marketplace Created resentment by OpenStack developers
