A Recap of the Xen Project Developer Summit 2016
The Xen Project descended on Toronto, Canada in late August for its annual Xen Project Developer Summit. The Summit is an opportunity for developers and software engineers to collaborate and discuss the latest advancements of the Xen Project software. It also gives developers a chance to better understand new trends and deployments in the community and from power enterprise users.
From community growth to new emerging use cases, the Summit covered a lot of ground. Developments within core technologies such as security, graphics support and hardware support were discussed. We also covered emerging technologies such as automotive, embedded and IoT. All sessions were recorded and are available here and also on slideshare (follow this link for summit presentations).
Below is a summary of a few videos that feature technology that has been recently introduced into the Xen Project hypervisor as well as emerging technologies that are being built with Xen Project technology.
New Feature Technologies from Xen Project Community and Power Users
In Xen Project 4.7, we introduced Live Patching as a technology preview. Live Patching gives system administrators and DevOps practitioners the ability to update the Xen Project hypervisor without the need for a reboot. Konrad Wilk, software development manager of Oracle and Ross Lagerwall, software enggineer at Citrix, provide insight into how it works, what the difficulties were to implement, and how it compares to other technologies for patching (kGraft, kPatch, kSplice, Linux hot-patching).
