Open Source operating systems like Linux offer the potential to make
virtualization fast, easy and a commodity by introducing the required
changes into the OS as part of the standard kernel. Fast virtualization
with a low overhead, furthermore makes it possible for the first time to
use it in production environments (rather than just test and development).
Xen, the leading Open Source virtualization technology has quickly become a
standard adopted by many leading ISVs to build comprehensive data center
efficiency and management solutions. This session will provide an overview
of Xen and discuss best practices for deploying it to achieve enterprise
