Improving Scalability of Xen: The 3,000 Domains Experiment

Machines are getting powerful these days and more and more VMs will run on a single machine.

The targeting audiences are cloud developers, kernel developers and those who are interested in Xen scalability and internals. They need to have general knowledge of Linux, knowledge of Xen is not required but nice to have
