The Xen Project is focused on advancing virtualization in a number of different commercial and open source applications, including server virtualization, Infrastructure as a Services (IaaS), desktop virtualization, security applications, embedded and hardware appliances, and automotive/aviation.


Xen Project software is extremely versatile and customizable due to its unique architecture bringing the power of virtualization everywhere.


The No. 1 choice for the largest hyperscale clouds in the industry, including Amazon Web Service, Tencent, and Alibaba Cloud, Oracle Cloud, Rackspace’s public cloud and IBM SoftLayer.


The safest and most reliable hypervisor to use for security-first environments due to lean architecture, advanced security features, and an industry-leading security disclosure process.


Maturity, isolation, security features, real-time support, fault-tolerance, and a flexible architecture make the Xen Project hypervisor a perfect match for embedded and automotive systems.
