    is the foundation for many products and platforms

    The Xen Project is 11 years old, mature and its stability is second to none:

    the Xen Project serves as the basis for many commercial server virtualization, desktop and embedded products as well as hardware appliances.

    Examples of server products include Huawei UVP, Oracle VM and XenServer. Examples of client solutions, appliances and embedded products include QubesOS, XenClient, Netscaler and GlobalLogic’s Nautilus Platform.

When Virtualised Storage is Faster than Bare Metal

An analysis of block size, inflight requests and outstanding data INTRODUCTION Back in August 2014 I went to the Xen Project Developer Summit in Chicago (IL) and presented a graph that caused a few faces to go "ahn?". The graph was meant to show how well XenServer 6.5 storage throughput could scale over several guests. For that, I compared 10 fio threads running in dom0 (mimicking 10 virtual disks) with 10 guests running 1 fio thread each. The result: the aggregate throughput of the virtual machines was actually higher. In XenServer 6.5 (used for those measurements), the storage traffic of 10 VMs corresponds to...
