Xen

The Xen hypervisor is a powerful open source industry standard for virtualization. It offers a powerful, efficient, and secure virtualization feature set. The Xen hypervisor supports a wide range of guest operating systems, including Windows*, Linux, Solaris*, and various BSD operating systems. Intel enables Xen with advanced Intel® Xeon® processor server features, such as Reliability/Availability/Serviceability (RAS), power management, security, and scalability.

Description

Intel in Xen: Delivering Choice in Open Virtualization Solutions

Released to the public in 2003, Xen runs directly on the physical host server, controlling its hardware resources directly and managing them for guest OSs. As one of the founding members of the Xen project and a primary contributor beginning with the project’s initial release in 2003, Intel’s consistent, long-standing commitment to Xen is well established.

Through ongoing, upstream code contributions to the Xen project in the areas of reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) as well as scalability, security and power-efficiency, Intel helps ensure that its latest technology advances can easily be harnessed by solution providers, such as Citrix, Oracle, SUSE and others. As a result, enterprises around the world can select from a healthy choice of powerful, open virtualization and cloud solutions.

Latest advancements include support for Intel® Graphics Virtualization Technology (Intel® GVT), which enable exciting, and sometimes surprising, new usage models. In this white paper, Kevin Tian examines how demanding workloads like visualization are being moved from the GPU to virtual machines.
