Xen Project 4.6 Planning Opens

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.

Catch Xen Project Talks at SCALE 13X, openSUSE Mini-Summit, & LF Collaboration Summit This Week

California Gets Four Opportunities in Four Days at Three Conferences to Hear About Xen Project

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:

LFCollab

Set up Two Node RDO Juno ML2&OVS&VXLAN Cluster runnig Docker Hypervisor on Compute Node (CentOS 7, kernel 3.10.0-123.20.1.el7.x86_64)

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.

Getting Started With FreeRTOS for Xen on ARM

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.

Xen Project @ FOSDEM

Going to FOSDEM’15? Well, you want to check out the schedule of the Virtualization & IaaS devroom then, and make sure you do not miss the talks about Xen.

Here they are the talks, in some more details:

CES 2015: Smart Cars are the New Smart Phone

This is a reprint of the following Linux.com article by Alex Agizim, VP, CTO Embedded Systems at GlobalLogic

“Smart car” technology had a huge presence at CES 2015, from BMW’s 360-degree collision avoidance and parking assist features to Audi’s Human Machine Interface (HMI) that connects to an iPhone or Android device. And with both Apple and Google jumping into the market with their CarPlay and Android Auto IVI systems, the automotive industry is on the brink of some significant changes.

Future of Xen Project: Video Spotlight Interview with Intel’s Donald Dugger

Intel’s Virtualization Architect Donald Dugger started working on Xen Project software eight years ago. We recently interviewed Don to find out why Intel continues to support, contribute and invest in the Xen Project. One of the first companies to contribute to hardware-assisted virtualization, today Intel remains equally focused on actively promoting open source virtualization. The company continually adds new virtualization features in its CPUs and is constantly evolving its virtualization support.

Less is More in the New Xen Project 4.5 Release

If we used code-names, the Xen 4.5 release should be called Panda on Diet! We have 78K new code with 141K deleted. In effect this release has -63KLOC code than the previous one.

The net effect of a skinnier Xen Project Hypervisor code base is increased usability, simplicity and innovation. This is all by design and one of many steps we’ll continue to take to fine-tune our development and release cycle.
