Also, I just booked my airline tickets yesterday and got round trip from Orlando, FL to Shanghai for $985 US. This is a good price from the East Coast of the US and I expect that many of you on the West Coast of the US might find good prices as well if you start looking soon.
So, consider coming to Xen Summit Asia this year and remember to book early to save on travel costs.
Over the past few months, I have received several comments about updating the home page of the Xen.org Wiki to be more user friendly. I have completed a first pass at doing just this which is available for your review at wiki.xensource.com.
The new home page is based on a Q&A format and I have created a new home page for all the developer content, which retains its original feel. I will be updating the Developer Home Page next once I get more feedback on the new home page for the entire Wiki.
Were you unable to make it to any of the Xen training sessions so far?Â You could attend one of the next Xen training sessions; however, if you are also unable to attend the upcoming sessions, you are still in luck.
The instructors of the recent Xen training sessions, featured at several conferences around the United States, have posted their slides online for the benefit of the Xen community.Â These slides, both viewable and downloadable online, are being provided free for use, sharing, and adaptation by you or your organization, and are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 Generic License.
The slides may be freely viewed and downloaded here:
The most recent version of these slides were authored by Zach Shepherd and Wenjin Hu, derived from the original slides by Todd Deshane and Patrick F. Wilbur.Â They largely reference the Running Xen: A Hands-On Guide to the Art of Virtualization book, so you might also want to check that out if you prefer a book format for learning about the Xen open-source hypervisor.
(These slides are being hosted by the Clarkson Open Source Institute, where they supersede the now famous 2005 “Installing Xen” how-to that was originally located at the above URL.)
Please check out the “KVM or Xen” poll linked below.
Created by Kris Buytaert – long-time open source consultant,Â co-author of the book “Virtualization with Xen,” and writer at Virtualization.com – this poll asks about your platform of choice while planning for the future: follow Red Hat to KVM or stick with Xen?
