2 weeks to Xen Project Developer Summit - What to expect and Why to attend

Only last week, the Xen Project team was at OSCON where we launched Mirage OS 2.0 (event report to follow soon, but in the meantime check out the following sessions Nymote and Mirage, Floss Weekly on Mirage OS, Hypervisor Selection in Apache CloudStack and Community War Stories) and now our Developer Summit is just round the corner. As we have seen tremendous community growth in the last 12 months (>30%) and the most feature reach Xen Project Hypervisor release coming up soon, I thought I'd share what you can expect.

Beyond Creedence - XenServer 2015 Planning

In a few weeks James Bulpin and I will be at the Xen Project Developers Summit in Chicago, and some of our discussions will be about the future of XenServer, and more importantly to the community "What comes after Creedence?". With the Creedence alpha program we're seeing a level of community engagement which has honestly exceeded my expectations. I attribute this to the significant improvements in the platform, but also the level of transparency we've had with respect to early access to pre-release builds. While it was pretty obvious what we needed to do to make Creedence viable, your input is...

Debian Installer ARM64 Dailies

It's taken a while but all of the pieces are finally in place to run successfully through Debian Installer on ARM64 using the Debian ARM64 port. So I'm now running nightly builds locally and uploading them to http://www.hellion.org.uk/debian/didaily/arm64/. If you have CACert in your CA roots then you might prefer the slightly more secure version. Hopefully before too long I can arrange to have them building on one of the project machines and uploaded to somewhere a little more formal like people.d.o or even the regular Debian Installer dailies site. This will have to do for now though. Warning The arm64 port is currently hosted on Debian Ports which only supports the unstable "sid" distribution. This means that...

RDO Setup Two Real Node (Controller+Compute) IceHouse Neutron ML2&OVS&VXLAN Cluster on CentOS 7

As of 07/28/2014 Bug https://ask.openstack.org/en/question/35705/attempt-of-rdo-aio-install-icehouse-on-centos-7/ is still pending and workaround suggested above should be applied during two node RDO packstack installation. Successful implementation of Neutron ML2&&OVS&&VXLAN multi node setup requires correct version of plugin.ini -> /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini which appears to be generated with errors by packstack. Two boxes  have been setup , each one having 2  NICs (enp2s0,enp5s1) […]

Full XO stack on npm

This a quick post about how XO is built. 1 year ago, we choose to switch from PHP to NodeJS: what a great idea! It’s easier to work with JavaScript on the whole stack (from “xo-server”, the back-end, to “xo-web”, the front-end), we got really better performances, better scalability, less dependencies, and so on. Plus […]

VM Backup with Xen Orchestra

As you may already know, we planned to integrate backups directly in Xen Orchestra: this feature is in our current road map. The goal is to provide a simple interface to select, plan and automatize all your VMs backups. But, until its done, one of our clients needs quickly a way to snapshot all its […]

Colored diffs with mutt

I cannot stand reviewing patches with gmail or any GUI e-mail client. I use mutt. On my last post I explained how you can apply patches directly from within mutt onto a git tree with a few shortcuts without leaving the terminal. This small post provides the next step to allow you to grow a mustache... I mean, get you to enjoy your mutt experience even more when reviewing patches by getting you colored diffs to match the same colors provided to you by good 'ol 'git diff'. Edit your .muttrc file and add these.# Patch syntax highlighting                                                     color   normal ...
