Xen @ LinuxCon Brazil

Xen.org is pleased to announce that we are helping to plan and run the Cloud Discovery Days @ LinuxCon Brazil, Nov 17-18, 2011, Expo Center Norte, São Paulo, Brazil. We are doing this in partnership with Citrix, Dell and Rackspace.

From a Xen perspective, a number of interesting things will happen:

  • I will give a status update on PVOPS, the Xen Hypervisor project, XCP and Xen ARM
  • Marcus Granado will demonstrate how to use XCP via the command-line and using open source graphical interfaces, and describe some interesting features that set XCP apart from other virtualization platforms.
  • Boriz Quiroz will discuss a case study of an Asian company that, using cloud computing platform such as OpenStack and XCP has developed a comprehensive service network to e-learning.

There will also be many talks about Openstack and Cloud in general. A CD with an XCP 1.1 image and Openstack sources will be given to all attendees at the event and distributed via the Brazilian Linux Magazine.

Do check out the Cloud Discovery Days program page for more information. If you are a member of our South American Xen community and want to connect with me and other Xen community members, do get in touch.
