Xen IRC Logs

Hello Xen Users,

I’d like to announce the immediate availability of transcripts for the Freenode.net #xen IRC channel, covering over two years of our active community and accessible at http://www.zentific.com/irclogs.

Many excellent discussions regarding Xen and related topics are preserved for your reference, searchable and easy to browse. Whenever you have a question, do not hesitate to check the logs; there is an excellent chance that others have answered a similar question.

As an aside, this is my first post to blog.xen.org! I’ve been involved in the Xen community for nearly three years, assisting others in Freenode’s #xen channel as an operator.

In addition, I am the lead developer behind Zentific, a web-based management interface for clusters of virtual machines. Zentific aims to serve technical and non-technical users alike, while making advanced control a breeze. It can manage hundreds of virtual machines with as many users, provides an extensible API for customization, and offers flexible configurations for many use cases. For more information, check out http://zentific.com.

More posts full of Xen goodness are to come. Stay tuned.
