One of the core features that differentiates Xen from other open-source hypervisors is its native support for stealthy and secure monitoring of guest internals (aka. virtual machine introspection ). In Xen 4.6 which was was released last autumn several new features have been introduced that make this subsystem better; a cleaned-up, optimized API and ARM support being just some of the biggest items on this list. As part of this release of Xen, a new and unique feature was also successfully added by a team from Intel that make stealthy monitoring even better on Xen: altp2m.

He has since become an open source enthusiasts, worked on several open source communities, and is the chairperson of the Xen Project Advisory Board. He is also the Director of the Xen Project at Citrix.
He recently sat down to discuss why Xen Project software makes sense for the cloud and where the community and technology is heading this year in this short video. Read on for more.

We were lucky to have the opportunity to meet up with GlobalLogic at CES and talk to them about their Nautilus platform for automotive virtualization. A few years ago, no one understood why the company was demoing hypervisor technology as a part of Nautilus, a set of solution accelerators that includes architectural concepts, a modified Android OS distribution, and advanced UI concepts. Today, however, no one is questioning why they are using virtualization.
I am pleased to announce the next Xen Project Hackathon. The Hackathon will be hosted by ARM in their Cambridge Headquarters from April 18 and 19. I wanted to thank Philippe Robin and Thomas Molgaard from ARM for hosting the Hackathon.
