Project Mission

The mission of the Xen Project is to focus upon the development and support of an open source hypervisor and related components, developed and designed to run with the Linux platform.  The Xen Project is open for participation from individuals and companies who have an interest in advancing the state of the Xen Project ecosystem.  

The Xen Project follows open source best practices, where code is contributed through an open and transparent process, and evaluated for inclusion based upon technical merit.  Committers and Maintainers are elected based upon their standing in the project.

The Xen Project Advisory Board consists of companies who are members of The Linux Foundation, and who are committed to steering the project to advance its market and technical success, and who serve as positive ambassadors for the project.
