Xen is an Open Source virtual machine monitor for Intel-compatible
computers (the "x86" platform) that enables the execution of multiple
guest operating systems on a the same computer hardware.
Developed by the University of Cambridge, it has a design goal of being
able to run 100 full-featured operating system (OS) instances on a single
Xen provides secure isolation, resource control, quality-of-service
guarantees, and live migration of virtual machines.
Operating systems must be explicitly modified ("ported") to
run on Xen (although compatibility is maintained for user
applications). This enables Xen to achieve high-performance
virtualization without special hardware support.
