Overview

Complete Coverage of Xen, Including Version 3.2
Virtualization with Xen is the first book to demonstrate to readers how to install, administer, and maintain a virtual infrastructure based on XenSource’s latest release, Xen 3.2. It discusses best practices for setting up a Xen environment correctly the first time, maximizing the utilization of server assets while taking advantage of the fastest and most secure enterprise-grade paravirtualization architecture. It covers both basic and advanced topics, such as planning and installation, physical-to-virtual migrations, virtual machine provisioning, resource management, and monitoring and troubleshooting guests and Xen hosts.

• Explore Xen’s Virtualization Model
Find a complete overview of the architecture model as well of all products: Xen 3.0 , Xen Express, XenServer, and Xen Enterprise.
• Deploy Xen
Understand the system requirements, learn installation methods, and see how to install Xen on a free Linux distribution.
• Master the Administrator Console
Learn how to use the command-line tools and the remote Java-based consoler that manages the configuration and operations of XenServer hosts and VMs.
• Manage Xen with Third-Party Tools
Use products like openQRM, Enomalism, and Project ConVirt to manage the VMM.
• Deploy a Virtual Machine in Xen
Learn about workload planning and installing modified guests, unmodified guests, and Windows guests.
