XEN and the art of Virtualization

Filed under: linux — tuxicity @ 12:23 pm

I endeavour to spend a bit of time over the Christmas/New Year break trying out and learning about new things as these opportunities don’t present themselves much through the year. On Friday night over dinner, a good friend Russell Robinson mentioned a virtualization product XEN, which was being put to very good use where he does some contracting work. I’d heard of XEN but didn’t know anything about it. I still have Cherryl’s new PC that I can play around with, so this seemed like a good time to check XEN out.

Computer virtualization enables you to run a guest operating system from within another host operating system. Lets say you are running Windows XP and would like to run Linux at the same time, well that’s where virtualization comes into play.
