Xen Directions Intro Slides

  1. 1. Xen Directions Europe 2009 Stephen Spector Community Manager
  2. 2. Welcome "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,
  3. 3. Mission Statement • Build the industry standard open source hypervisor – Core "engine" that is incorporated into multiple vendors’ products • Maintain Xen’s industry-leading performance – Be first to exploit new hardware acceleration features – Help OS vendors paravirtualize their OSes • Maintain Xen’s reputation for stability and quality – Security must now be paramount • Support multiple CPU types; big and small systems – From server to client to mobile phone • Foster innovation • Drive interoperability
