Hope everyone had a good Memorial Day Holiday!

For an upcoming BALUG meeting, I thought you may be interested in having
XenSource (www.xensource.com <http://www.xensource.com/> ) present on
"Enterprise Grade Virtualization with Open Source Technologies".
XenSource was founded by the creators of the Open Source Xen hypervisor.
Xen is Open Source software, released under the terms of the GNU General
Public License.

Below is an abstract for your consideration.  If you have questions or
would like to discuss scheduling a presentation, please let me know.

I can be reached at 650-947-7400 or heather@mindsharepr.com.

Thank you.

Best regards, Heather

Abstract: Virtualization is a new and hot item to the world of Linux and
Windows. There have been, however, virtualization technologies for over
40 years starting with the IBM emulators for mainframes and later with
the CP67 and VM virtualizing operating systems.

Open Source operating systems like Linux offer the potential to make
virtualization fast, easy and a commodity by introducing the required
changes into the OS as part of the standard kernel. Fast virtualization
with a low overhead, furthermore makes it possible for the first time to
use it in production environments (rather than just test and

Xen, the leading Open Source virtualization technology has quickly
become a standard adopted by many leading ISVs to build comprehensive
data center efficiency and management solutions. This session will
provide an overview of Xen and discuss best practices for deploying it
to achieve enterprise grade virtualization.
