SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., July 9 -- The Xen Project, a Collaborative Project hosted at The Linux Foundation, today announced the availability of Xen Project hypervisor version 4.3.
The Xen Project powers more than 10 million users across enterprise and cloud computing in addition to embedded and mobile devices. Xen Project is backed by some of the largest names in computing including Amazon Web Services, AMD, Google, Oracle, Intel and many other hardware and hosting service providers. The Xen Project open source virtualization platform is licensed under the GPLv2 with a similar governance structure to the Linux kernel.
The investments the Xen Project has been making in further opening up development, culminating with the decision to be an independent Collaborative Project at The Linux Foundation, have resulted in increased collaborative development and the inclusion of the following new capabilities and improvements in the Xen Project 4.3:
"Virtualization is important to Linux and the open source community and the Xen Project is helping companies realize new levels of scalability and efficiency in areas such as cloud computing," said Mike Woster, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President at The Linux Foundation. "With the latest release of Xen Project, organizations can advance their cloud computing strategies to deliver on customer expectations for their enterprise environments."
"The Xen Project 4.3 release represents a collective effort of global development and we see the enhancements helping to advance innovation in virtualization and cloud computing," said Lars Kurth, Community Manager, Xen Project. "The ARM server support is an exciting development for the community and we're excited about the opportunities this will bring to customers."
"The Xen Project and community work on porting to ARM hardware is an important milestone, and we're happy to have worked with the Xen Project community to advance this work," said Larry Wikelius, Co-Founder and VP Software, Calxeda. "The Xen Project is helping to advance our efforts to address virtualization and cloud computing in a variety of IT environments."
The Xen Project counts many industry leaders and open source community leaders among its members including: Amazon Web Services, AMD, Bromium, Calxeda, CA Technologies, Cisco, Citrix, Google, Intel, Oracle, Samsung and Verizon.
