Amazon CTO Thanks You, The Xen.org Community

In an amazing video from Virtualization.com, Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon thanks you – the Xen.org community for the great Xen solution.

From Video:


(1:30): How hard was it to integrate the Xen hypervisor into your cloud platform?

 

“I think Xen is a great product. It is easy to use. But most importantly is the very active community around it. I would not say many ‘issues’ around using Xen, but ‘challenges’ are addressed there with the things every virtual machine has to deal with. Things such

as: I/O-issues, guaranteed scheduling issues, domain zero security concerns,…The community out there is very helpful. That was a very big reason for us in selecting Xen.”
