Enterprise-Class Virtualization with Open Source Technologies

When: October 18, 2006 7:00PM (6:30 for Q&A)
Topic: Enterprise-Class Virtualization with Open Source Technologies
Moderator: Alex Vasilevsky, Founder and CTO, Virtual Iron, Inc
 Location:  MIT Building E51 Room 335 
An overview of Xen hypervisor and Virtual Iron's technology

    Virtualization is a new and hot item to the world of x86 hardware.
There have been, however, virtualization technologies for over 40 years
starting with the IBM emulators for mainframes and later with the CP67
and VM virtualizing operating systems.

    Newest hardware from Intel and AMD makes possible for the first
time use hardware virtualization in production environments (rather
than just test and development).

    Xen, the leading Open Source virtualization technology, has quickly
become a standard adopted by many leading companies to build
comprehensive data center efficiency and management solutions.

    This session will provide an overview of Xen hypervisor,
architecture and capabilities of the Virtual Iron product built on Xen
hypervisor, possible open source extensions, and best practices for
deployment to achieve enterprise-class virtualization.

    Alex founded Virtual Iron in 2003 and serves as its CTO. Alex has
been instrumental in defining and creating the technology and
architecture behind Virtual Iron.
