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. Anyone dealing with Clouds or virtualization will benefit from attending. Attendees will learn why the Xen Hypervisor, included in openSUSE, brings unique value to Clouds and why it deserves consideration when creating a Cloud architecture.
