    is the foundation for many products and platforms

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

OPW: The Xen Project Developer Summit

This is a repost from Arianna’s blog, which contains a lot of in-depth technical articles related to the Xen Project. So, about halfway through my OPW internship, I was informed that my wonderful mentor, Konrad Wilk, and Xen Project Community Manager Lars Kurth thought to allow me to attend the Xen Project Developer Summit that [...]

Will you give Xen a ride … or will Xen give you a ride?

And by “a ride”, we actually mean a ride. Like this:   Like, will Xen run in your car?  Well, it appears it will! It all started with ARM Support In fact, Xen Project developers started woking on supporting the ARM architecture (with hardware virtualization capabilities) a couple of years ago. The goal was simple: [...]

Post-Creedence details to be presented at Xen Project User Summit

Last month I posted seeking feedback from you our community on what the post-Creedence world should look like. The response was impressive, and we've started incorporating what you want in a virtualization platform into our plans for the next release of XenServer; occurring after Creedence. While it's a bit early to divulge those details, I plan as part of my session on Creedence at the Xen Project User Summit to give you a roadmap for what to expect, what the code name will be for the project, and how you can help move the project forward. There will also be...

Physical separation vs. Software compartmentalization

Many people believe the Holy Grail of secure isolation is to use two or more physically separate machines. This belief seems so natural, that we often don't give it much thought. After all, what better isolation could we possible get than physical "airgap"?I argue with this point of view in this new paper.I think a good place for in-depth technical discussions around the topics discussed in the paper would be our qubes-devel mailing list.

Hacking on systemd with OpenSUSE

I had recently had no other option but to hack on systemd :*( and found there wasn't any documentation on how to do this on OpenSUSE. Replacing your /sbin/init isn't as simple as it used to be back in the day, eventually I figured things out with a few hiccups but apart from the actual ability to hack and install systemd I also picked up a bit of good best practices you can use to help while testing, and dealt with installing kdbus as I was tired of seeing those pesky warnings from systemd without it. My first assumption that things...
