The Xen.org community, home of the open source Xen hypervisor, is pleased to be working directly with an important corporate member of our community, AMD, for our Xen Summit North America event. Hosted twice a year, Xen Summit events in North America and Asia allow Xen developers, customers, and virtualization technologists to gather and discuss “all things Xen”. The first Xen summit event of 2010 is being held at AMD’s corporate headquarters in Sunnyvale, CA on April 28 – 29, 2010 and I would like to encourage developers and technologists interested in Xen and virtualization to attend this event.
Over these two days, attendees will be given the chance to directly interact with leading Xen virtualization developers such as Keir Fraser, Ian Campbell, Dan Magenheimer, Jeremy Fitzhardinge, Jan Beulich, George Dunlap, and others. Ian Pratt, the founder and chairman of Xen.org, will also present his “State of the Community” keynote and provide attendees plenty of time to interact and discuss Xen technology, roadmaps and future direction. In addition, Thomas Woller, a senior member of the technical staff at AMD, will present a paper on behalf of AMD. A party on the first night of the event will give attendees a chance to interact with the Xen community in a relaxed, informal setting.
