Xen and Debian

Past, Present & Future

Debian was one of the earliest Linux distributions to offer support for the Xen hypervisor and continues to offer excellent Xen support and integration. This has made Debian a key platform for the deployment of "cloud" and SaaS infrastructure based entirely around Free Software. In this talk I will look a bit at the background of Xen in Debian as well as the current state of the world and recent developments for Wheezy. Lastly I'll spend some time talking about new developments and plans for the future, covering both Xen itself and related cloud orchestration tools.
