Xen hypervisor, the powerful open source industry Launches New Open Cloud Initiatives
September 01, 2009
Enterprise-Class Cloud Infrastructures
Xen.org, the home of the open source Xen hypervisor, Yesterday formally announced the Xen Cloud Platform (XCP) initiative – a powerful new community-led effort to build on the growing leadership of the Xen hypervisor in today`s cloud, and deliver a secure and proven open source infrastructure platform for the federated cloud services of tomorrow.
It’s a complete run-time virtual environmental platform that virtualizes your server resources and its configuration like storage space, server and network resources. The virtual environment is the way to segment your resources and infrastructure.
The low cost and fast development benefits of the open source model, clubbed with its proven security, performance and customizability
These initiatives produce open source contributors and consumers to come together around a more focused effort to deliver a complete
Xen-based infrastructure product that supports a wide range of current and
future cloud scenarios. XCP main focus is to provide technology that permits easy interoperability between internal enterprises and leading external cloud platform like Rackspace Cloud Servers and GoGrid.
Rackspace President and Chief Strategy Officer Lew Moorman is very excited about the direction and scope of the Xen Cloud Platform and we have built our cloud server offering on the Xen platform and are experiencing strong customer interest and good comments through our customers and partners. The Cloud will not even reduce the cost of computing but it will provide you instantaneous access to enabling customers to improve the speed of their business.
The Xen Cloud Platform will combine the mobility and openness attributes of the Xen virtualization platform with innovative storage, security and network virtualization technologies already under development as part of Xen.org. As a result, it will not only matter cloud provider requirements around
security and isolation, but will also meet next-generation user requirements for security, availability, performance, isolation and manage between on-premise and off-premise infrastructures.
