  • 2. 09/04/09 2 "I think Xen is a great product. It is easy to use. But most important is the very active community around it. I would not say many 'issues' around using Xen, but 'challenges' are addressed there [in the community] with the things every virtual machine has to deal with. Things such as: I/O- issues, guaranteed scheduling issues, domain zero security concerns,… The community out there is very helpful. That was a very big reason for us in selecting Xen." Werner Vogels CTO, Amazon.com
