                    Moshe Bar and Ian Pratt (XenSource)
       Enterprise Grade Virtualization with Open Source Technologies

      Virtualization is a new and hot item to the world of Linux and
      Windows. There have been, however, virtualization technologies for
      over 40 years starting with the IBM emulators for mainframes and
      later with the CP67 and VM virtualizing operating systems.
      Open Source operating systems like Linux offer the potential to make
      virtualization fast, easy and a commodity by introducing the
      required changes into the OS as part of the standard kernel. Fast
      virtualization with a low overhead, furthermore makes it possible
      for the first time to use it in production environments (rather than
      just test and development).
      Xen, the leading Open Source virtualization technology has quickly
      become a standard adopted by many leading ISVs to build
      comprehensive data center efficiency and management solutions.  This
      session will provide an overview of Xen and discuss best practices
      for deploying it to achieve enterprise grade virtualization.
      Xen was originally developed by the Systems Research Group at the
      University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. Xen is Open Source
      software, released under the terms of the GNU General Public
