Mirage OS Releases
Mirage OS is a library operating system that constructs unikernels for secure, high-performance network applications across a variety of cloud computing and mobile platforms. As such, Mirage OS is a collection of libraries and tools, as well as a development workflow. This means that any given release is a set of related libraries, intended for use by application developers, with various dependencies and independent version numbers.
All Mirage OS libraries are released via the OCaml Package Manager (OPAM), which makes it easy for developers to obtain the libraries, with OPAM managing the dependencies. To being using Mirage OS, you must first install OPAM. Once OPAM is installed, obtaining the latest release of Mirage OS is as simple as
opam install mirage.
Although we do not recommend using outdated package sets, below are links on how to obtain previous versions. These outdated versions of the Mirage packages set are unsupported and we encourage all users to remain up to date. Keeping your package set up to date is as as easy as
opam update, followed by
opam upgrade. We recommend you do this on a regular basis to benefit from frequent bug fixes and new features.
The Windows PV Drivers are built individually into a tarball:
- Windows PV Bus Driver
- Windows PV Interface
- Windows PV Network Device Driver
- Windows PV Storage Host Adapter Driver
- Windows PV Network Class Driver
To install a driver on your target system, unpack the tarball, then navigate to either the x86 or x64 subdirectory (whichever is appropriate), and execute the copy of dpinst.exe you find there with Administrator privilege. For more information read the installation instructions.
XAPI comes in several variants
XCP ISOs (this page)
The XCP ISO is available for download here. XCP - a subset of XenServer - installs onto your host from an ISO, providing a complete enterprise-ready out-of-the-box server virtualization and cloud computing platform after install.
Important Notice: Before June 2013, XenServer was not fully open sourced. For this reason, the Xen Project made XCP available for download from this page. Since XenServer is now fully open source, the Xen Project will not release versions of XCP after XCP 1.6. See our FAQ for more information. You can download a full open source version of XenServer from XenServer.org.
Official Xen Project Source Releases
The Xen Project hypervisor is available as source distribution from these download pages. You can find instructions on how to build the Xen Project source release at this page.
Sources for Xen Project Binaries
You can get recent Xen Project binaries as packages from most Linux and Unix distributions, both open source and commercial. Some Linux distributions deliver Xen Project software as a LiveCD, that you can use to easily test the Xen Project hypervisor.
