Xen Training Day at LISA 2008 Review

The Xen Training Day at LISA was our largest training event to date with 75 attendees, making us the largest training session at the event. We received very positive feedback about the class and the great Xen hypervisor solution. I expect to see more Xen training sessions in 2009 as we work with the USENIX team to create 2 or 3 different classes to further promote the solution.

In fact, the next step for the Xen community is to create a training class for education and research IT administrators to learn how to design and deploy a large Xen solution, similar to what Brandeis University did. If you are interested in working on creating this class, please contact me.

Finally, Zach, Wenjin, and I did an interview with a LISA event blogger that can be found here: http://lisa.usenix.org/2008/11/11/lisa-insider-the-xenorg-team-on-xen-training/.

Thanks again to the Clarkson University team for their time and commitmenet to supporting Xen training.
