Virtualization in the Cloud: Featuring Xen and XCP
The Xen Cloud Platform is an open-source, enterprise-ready server virtualization platform. It is based on the Xen hypervisor, and represents the common code base for Citrix's XenServer product line. This talk will give an introduction to XCP, and how it relates to both the Xen hypervisor and to Citrix's XenServer. We will cover XCP's XenAPI and how it can be used by two of the most popular cloud orchestration frameworks, CloudStack and OpenStack. Finally, we'll discuss the XCP "roadmap," and our plans for the future of XCP.
