Status of XenFS

When I checked back on this post something appeared to have broken; I’m blaming Firefox somehow playing badly with the WordPress web interface.  Hopefully the problems are now fixed and the article will be visible.  Sorry about that.

Now and again, I get e-mails asking me about the state of the XenFS project.  It’s something I’ve been working on for some time now and I haven’t always been very good at keeping the world up-to-date about my progress.  I thought it would be good if I summarised the state of things here, to start with.  In this article I give an overview of the arguments for XenFS and the techniques used.  I’ve necessarily missed out a lot of detail but I might provide occasional updates on the work in future, depending on peoples’ interest in this stuff.

Xen Research Community Brown-bag Call

I received a great idea from Todd Deshane today about having a monthly call where anyone interested in presenting their latest Xen related research can give a 20 minute presentation followed by questions from the audience. I can use GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar to setup the call and have a dial-in number to handle any size audience.

If you are interested in presenting your work, please email me and I will work at setting up a call in mid to late August. If we get several presentation topics, I will setup these calls monthly or quarterly depending on demand.
