With several companies introducing ARM servers recently, cloud providers and enterprise datacenters are excited to see new alternatives for reducing costs and power use come to market. Cavium, a semiconductor leader with a long heritage in security and wireless/ networking, entered the race with the introduction of ThunderX™ the industry’s first 48-core and 96-core family of ARMv8 workload optimized processors.
Members of the Xen Project development team have always believed that the hypervisor must be available for integration into other Open Source projects. In particular, the initiators of the Xen Project envisioned the day when compute resources would be available in a dynamic form, which has since been codified in the technology we now call Cloud Computing.
I am pleased to announce the next Xen Project Hackathon to be held this spring. Although we call it a Hackathon, the event consists of several parallel sessions in which Xen Project developers will create, discuss and review designs and changes that impact Xen’s architecture. We’ll perform code reviews, discuss our future roadmap, work on improving the development process, tackle debug problems in the code base and cover other development related topics. Sessions are very interactive: typically there are no presentations.
With Xen Project 4.5 released in January, we are now one month into 4.6 development window!
Mu name is Wei Liu and I have been working on various areas in the Xen Project community, including Linux kernel, hypervisor, QEMU and toolstack. Now I’m a co-maintainer of Xen hypervisor’s toolstack and the netback driver in Linux. I was elected release manager for 4.6 release. Thanks everybody for your trust.
February 19-22, 2015 has an assortment of great Xen Project talks.
Folks in Santa Rosa, CA at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit have two great talks:
It’s quite obvious that Nova-Docker driver set up success for real application is important to get on Compute Nodes . It’s nice when everything works on AIO Juno host or Controller, but just as demonstration. Might be I did something wrong , might be due to some other reason but kernel version 3.10.0-123.20.1.el7.x86_64 seems to be the first brings success on RDO Juno Compute nodes.

One of the challenges of using Xen in embedded environments is the need for core components to meet critical timing requirements. In traditional implementations engineers use real-time operating systems (RTOS) to ensure, for example, that an automobile’s brakes engage within a reasonable amount of time after the driver presses the brake pedal. It would clearly be bad if such a command were to be delayed unduly due to the car’s navigation or entertainment systems.
