Update on Project ConVirt

Project ConVirt is an active, open source project concieved with the goal of tackling the administrative and infrastructure management challenges that adoption of virtualization platforms presents to the traditional datacenter. The XenMan administrative console is project ConVirt's first release.

XenMan is an intuitive, graphical management tool aimed at operational lifecycle management for the Xen virtualization platform. XenMan is built on the firm design philosophy that ease-of-use and sophistication can, and should, co-exist in a single management tool. So, XenMan should hopefully prove valuable to both seasoned Xen Administrators as well as those just seeking an introduction to Xen Virtualization.

With XenMan's secure, multi-node administration, performance management and provisioning capabilities, administrators can safely manage their entire environment from a single, centralized console. Most common administrative tasks like starting, stopping, monitoring and provisioning virtual machines (Guest OS's) typically involve just a few mouse clicks with XenMan; as do server management operations like scanning OS configurations or acquiescing individual servers for maintainance.

XenMan is completely free. It is distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
