Xen Summit Fall 2007 Day 1

November 14, 2007

I went to the Xen Summit today at Sun Campus in Santa Clara.(it is such a nice place, it is my first time there)

There is a lot going on, Xen 3.2 should be out soon and will feature lots of interesting changes, particularly upgrades to HVM support (and to my particular interest, nice network acceleration modules) among other changes.

According to the Xen roadmap Dom0 will be disaggregated (which is nice because it had a lot of privileges and was getting huge).

It is nice to know that there is interest in the hardware department on virtualization, I can’t wait to see those virtualization aware NICs and IOMMU enabled graphic adapters… good 3D in a virtual machine may not be that far from reality.

There is a lot to say, but probably I will take more time to do it tomorrow after day 2.
