Podcast with Xen Open-Source Virtualization Founder and Citrix VP Ian Pratt

DABCC does it again with another great Podcast.

In episode 67, Douglas Brown interviews Ian Pratt, Vice President of Advanced Products for Citrix Systems, Inc.   Ian is also the co-founder of XenSource, the company Citrix bought and turned into the XenServer solution, along with the head of development of the Xen open-source hypervisor project.  Needless to say we were very excited to have Ian on the show.   Ian and Douglas discuss Ian's role at Citrix along with his views on everything from client side hypervisors to virtualization security, to the differences between the Xen hypervisor and Citrix's XenServer hypervisor.  Douglas and Ian also discuss the following subjects:

  • Who is Ian Pratt

  • Client side Hypervisors
  • Virtualization Security
  • History of Xen Hypervisor
  • Difference between Xen Hypervisor and Citrix XenServer
  • A bit about the Community
