Thinking Outside of the Conceived Comfort Zone
The Xen Project is used by more than 10 million users, powers some of the largest clouds on the planet, and is starting to build momentum in embedded and safety-conscious market segments. It is also nearly 16 years old.
The Xen Project’s success and longevity can be attributed to its flexible architecture, but more importantly to enabling community members to contribute ideas and code, even if they are not core to the project's main use-case. This has brought Xen far beyond server virtualization.
Lars will share how the project has supported new technologies and ideas, which may include some really interesting things you might not know about Xen (especially around defense applications), and will derive best practices that may help other projects.
