“This accessible and immediately useful book expertly provides the Xen community with everything it needs to know to download, build, deploy and manage Xen implementations.” —Ian Pratt, Xen Project Leader VP Advanced Technology, Citrix Systems The Real–World, 100% Practical Guide to Xen Virtualization in Production Environments Using free, open source Xen virtualization software, you can save money, gain new flexibility, improve utilization, and simplify everything from disaster recovery to software testing. Running Xen brings together all the knowledge you need to create and manage high–performance Xen virtual machines in any environment. Drawing on the unparalleled experience of a world–class Xen team, it covers everything from installation to administration—sharing field-tested insights, best practices, and case studies you can find nowhere else. The authors begin with a primer on virtualization: its concepts, uses, and advantages. Next, they tour Xen’s capabilities, explore the Xen LiveCD, introduce the Xen hypervisor, and walk you through configuring your own hard–disk–based Xen installation. After you’re running, they guide you through each leading method for creating “guests” and migrating existing systems to run as Xen guests. Then they offer comprehensive coverage of managing and securing Xen guests, devices, networks, and distributed resources. Whether you’re an administrator, data center manager, developer, system integrator, or ISP, Running Xen will help you achieve your goals with Xen–reliably, efficiently, with outstanding performance, and at a surprisingly low cost. •Understanding the Xen hypervisor: what it does, and how it works •Using pre-built system images, including compressed file systems •Managing domains with the xm console •Populating and storing guest images •Planning, designing, and configuring networks in Xen •Utilizing Xen security: special purpose VMs, virtual network segments, remote access, firewalls, network monitors, sHype access control, Xen Security Modules (XSM), and more •Managing guest resources: memory, CPU, and I/O •Employing Xen in the enterprise: tools, products, and techniques

Xen allows administrators to run many virtual operating systems on one physical server, including Linux, BSD, OpenSolaris, and Microsoft Windows. In the process, users save money on hardware, maintenance, and electricity. Not only is Xen open source, the Xen hypervisor (the virtual machine monitor) is the best-performing hypervisor available. "The Book of Xen" explains everything a sysadmin needs to know to use this powerful technology, with coverage of installation, networking, virtualized storage, and managing guest and host operating systems. Written for administrators who have worked with *NIX before but who may be new to virtualization, "The Book of Xen" covers both the basics and the trickier aspects of Xen administration, like profiling and benchmarks, migration, XenSource administration, and hardware assisted virtualization (HVM).

“The Xen hypervisor has become an incredibly strategic resource for the industry, as the focal point of innovation in cross-platform virtualization technology. David’s book will play a key role in helping the Xen community and ecosystem to grow.” –Simon Crosby, CTO, XenSource An Under-the-Hood Guide to the Power of Xen Hypervisor Internals The Definitive Guide to the Xen Hypervisor is a comprehensive handbook on the inner workings of XenSource’s powerful open source paravirtualization solution. From architecture to kernel internals, author David Chisnall exposes key code components and shows you how the technology works, providing the essential information you need to fully harness and exploit the Xen hypervisor to develop cost-effective, highperformance Linux and Windows virtual environments. Granted exclusive access to the XenSource team, Chisnall lays down a solid framework with overviews of virtualization and the design philosophy behind the Xen hypervisor. Next, Chisnall takes you on an in-depth exploration of the hypervisor’s architecture, interfaces, device support, management tools, and internals—including key information for developers who want to optimize applications for virtual environments. He reveals the power and pitfalls of Xen in real-world examples and includes hands-on exercises, so you gain valuable experience as you learn. This insightful resource gives you a detailed picture of how all the pieces of the Xen hypervisor fit and work together, setting you on the path to building and implementing a streamlined, cost-efficient virtual enterprise. Coverage includes · Understanding the Xen virtual architecture · Using shared info pages, grant tables, and the memory management subsystem · Interpreting Xen’s abstract device interfaces · Configuring and managing device support, including event channels, monitoring with XenStore, supporting core devices, and adding new device types · Navigating the inner workings of the Xen API and userspace tools · Coordinating virtual machines with the Scheduler Interface and API, and adding a new scheduler · Securing near-native speed on guest machines using HVM · Planning for future needs, including porting, power management, new devices, and unusual architectures

Server Sprawl and escalating IT costs have managers and system administrators scrambling to find ways to cut costs and reduce Total Cost of Ownership of their physical infrastructure. Combining software applications onto a single server, even if those applications are from the same software vendor, can be dangerous and problems hard to troubleshoot. Virtualization allows you to consolidate many servers onto a single physical server reducing hardware, electrical, cooling, and administrative costs. These virtual servers run completely independent of each other so if one crashes the other are not affected. Planning and implementing a server consolidation is a complex process. This book details the requirements for such a project, includes sample forms and templates, and delivers several physical to virtual migration strategies which will save both time and costs. Readers of this book will easily be able to plan and deploy VMware, Microsoft Virtual Server, and Xen. Create a virtual network to exchange information or provide a service to other virtual machines or computers Use virtualization to support removable media such as CD or DVD optical disks Reduce server costs, administration overhead, and complexity
