Announcing Project Zeus: XenAPI in Fedora, CentOS and the EPEL

The XCP team would like to announce Project Zeus, our port of the XCP toolstack to Fedora and CentOS (through the EPEL). This is a follow-on to Project Kronos, which brought the XCP toolstack to Debian-based systems. This will give users the ability to do ‘yum install xcp-xapi’ to build a system that is functionally equivalent to the normal XCP. Our target for this project is Fedora 17, which will be released in May.

We don’t have any code to share yet, but packaging is currently underway. We will be able to reuse most of the work that we did in Project Kronos to port xapi to Debian, so Zeus should take significantly less effort to accomplish. I’d like to thank Pasi Kärkkäinen, M A Young, David Nalley and Eric Christensen for volunteering to lead the packaging effort. Here are some useful links:
