Now that Xen Directions South America is planned and ready to go for later this month, I am starting efforts on the planning of Xen Summit Asia 2010 which is being sponsored by Samsung and Korea University. The event is set for November 2 – 3, 2010 at the Lotte Hotel in Seoul (http://www.lottehotelseoul.com). I do my best when selecting dates to not overlap with other conferences that draw from the same audience pool, however, I was not aware that the Linux Plumbers event is in Boston at the same time so my apologies for the schedule. We are staying with Nov 2-3 as we already have another event co-locating with us on November 1.
I am currently looking for volunteers willing to assist as Program Committee members. Please email me if you have interest in assisting in the selection of topics and other items related to this event. I plan to announce the Program Committee in 10 days on August 15, 2010.
I received an email from Alberto Gonzalez Rodriguez who created OpenXenCenter/OpenXenManager and is now working on OpenXenWebManager. Info to access the tool is:
steps to test are:
download from http://bit.ly/bres2U
uncompress: tar xvfz xenwebmanager_rev24_full.tar.gz cd xenwebmanager python frontend.py
and with a browser open http://localhost:8080 (or http://ip:8080) you need chrome or firefox (i prefer the first)
Post from Monica Kumar at Oracle:
Check out this short animated demo of Oracle VM that shows key capabilities and benefits for users.
In about 4 minutes, it walks through Oracle’s strategy with Oracle VM, gives a quick tour of a few key features, and explains Oracle’s focus on helping users realize further benefits from virtualization beyond just server consolidation.
Watch the demo.
