  Xen Virtualization

  Presented by: Luke S. Crawford

    Xen is an Open Source virtual machine monitor for Intel-compatible
    computers (the "x86" platform) that enables the execution of multiple
    guest operating systems on a the same computer hardware.
    Developed by the University of Cambridge, it has a design goal of being
    able to run 100 full-featured operating system (OS) instances on a single
    typical computer.

    Xen provides secure isolation, resource control, quality-of-service
    guarantees, and live migration of virtual machines.
    Operating systems must be explicitly modified ("ported") to
    run on Xen (although compatibility is maintained for user
    applications).  This enables Xen to achieve high-performance
    virtualization without special hardware support.
