What is XCP-ng?
XCP-ng stands for Xen Cloud Platform – next generation. It is a turnkey distribution of the Xen Project Hypervisor relying mostly on the Xen Hypervisor and the Xen API project (XAPI). The project was born in 2018, following the fork of the open source Xen Server project (now Citrix Hypervisor).
The primary goal of XCP-ng is to deliver an easy way to deploy a VM based infrastructure using Xen as the hypervisor, and the powerful XAPI to deliver a turnkey, working out-of-the-box solution. XCP-ng is compatible with most x86 servers currently on the market.
XCP-ng is designed to satisfy the needs of infrastructure of all sizes: from homelab to datacenter. XCP-ng is running in many different types of configurations in production.
