Xen: Open Source Hypervisor Designed for Clouds

A session at Open World Forum 2013

  • Lars Kurth

Friday 4th October, 2013

11:50am to 12:15pm (PMT)

It is no accident that Xen software powers some of the largest Clouds in existence. From its outset, the Xen Project was intended to enable what we now call Cloud Computing. This session will explore how the Xen Architecture addresses the needs of the Cloud in ways which facilitate security, throughput, and agility. It will also cover some of the hot new developments of the Xen Project.
