Extending Xen with Intel® Virtualization Technology

Cover

In this paper, we begin with a brief overview of Xen, an open source virtual machine monitor (VMM) that allows the hardware resources of a machine to be virtualized and dynamically shared between Operating Systems (OSs) running on top of it. Xen was the first open-source VMM that utilized Intel Virtualization Technology (VT) to support unmodified guest OSs, as well as, paravirtualized guest OSs.

 

Read this white paper to understand recent changes made to Xen to eable such enhanced virtualized performance. Learn about:

 

  • Getting the most out of Xen
  • Virtualization for memory, processors and devices
  • Benchmarks for Xen performance and much more!
