Reminder!  The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD) meets tonight!
(Monday, June 19, 2006) from 6:30pm to 9:00pm.

The meeting will be held at:

  Davis Public Library
  Blanchard room
  315 East 14th St.
  Davis, California 95616

Presentation:  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.
