Youâ€™ll find many of our members and contributors taking on more than coding this spring. Weâ€™re excited to attend several upcoming industry events and share Xen Project milestones, news, use cases and roadmap updates in-person with many in our community.
We encourage you to attend any of these upcoming Xen Project talks. And, if you do, make sure to introduce yourself to the speaker. Â It’s always good to meet new people from the Xen Project community!
First Stop: Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit
This week youâ€™ll find the Xen Project team in wine country at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in Napa Valley, California. Â We have a terrific set of Xen Project sessions at this yearâ€™s conference. In fact, the schedule for March 27 reads like a mini Xen Project Summit.
At 11:30 AM, GlobalLogic CTO Alex Azizam discusses â€œXen versus Xen Automotive,â€ an overview of the technologies required to fully use Xen Project software in automotive applications.
At 2:00 PM, Intel Software Engineer Zhiyuan Lv presents â€œXenGT: A Full GPU Virtualization Solution with Mediated Pass-Through.â€ Â GPU virtualization is especially hot right now, and this project to provide high-performance virtual GPUs for use within the Xen Project environment is especially interesting.
At 3:00 PM, Oracle Software Engineer Mukesh Rathor talks about â€œPVH: A PV Guest in HVM Container.â€ Â The combination of PV and HVM promises to yield the highest performance of any Xen Project hypervisor mode for most workloads.
And, finally, at 4:00 PM, I deliver an overview of our new release with â€œXen Project 4.4: Features and Futures.â€ Â Attendees will hear about the newest capabilities, as well as hear a quick summary of some upcoming enhancements on the project roadmap.
Check out the Collaboration Summit Q&A on Linux.com for more event highlights and Xen Project reflections.
Up Next: ApacheCon / CloudStack Collaboration Conference / CentOS Dojo
With barely any time to rest, youâ€™ll next find us at ApacheCon and the CloudStack Collaboration Conference April 7-9 in Denver, Colo.
At 2:20 PM on Thursday, April 10 Iâ€™ll again present â€œXen Project 4.4: Features and Futuresâ€ for the Apache CloudStack enthusiasts visiting the Mile High City.
Later that day, at 4:20 PM Iâ€™ll deliver â€œUsing and Understanding Xen CentOSâ€ at CentOS Dojo (also co-located with ApacheCon), discussing how to use the Xen Project hypervisor on top of CentOS.
On Friday, April 11 at 11:45 AM, John Mark Walker, Gluster Community Manager at Red Hat, presents â€œThe New Cloud Stack — CloudStack, Xen and GlusterFSâ€ and the latest work from Gluster engineers to improve integration and scalability across these technologies.
