Book: Virtualization with Xen: Including Xenenterprise, Xenserver, and Xenexpress

Virtualization with Xen is the first book to demonstrate to readers how to install, administer, and maintain a virtual infrastructure based on XenSources latest release, Xen 3.2. It discusses best practices for setting up a Xen environment correctly the first time, maximizing the utilization of server assets while taking advantage of the fastest and most secure enterprise-grade paravirtualization architecture. It covers both basic and advanced topics, such as planning and installation, physical-to-virtual migrations, virtual machine provisioning, resource management, and monitoring and troubleshooting guests and Xen hosts.

  • Explore Xens Virtualization Model - Find a complete overview of the architecture model as well of all products: Xen 3.0 , Xen Express, XenServer, and Xen Enterprise.
  • Deploy Xen - Understand the system requirements, learn installation methods, and see how to install Xen on a free Linux distribution.
  • Master the Administrator Console - Learn how to use the command-line tools and the remote Java-based consoler that manages the configuration and operations of XenServer hosts and VMs.
  • Manage Xen with Third-Party Tools - Use products like openQRM, Enomalism, and Project ConVirt to manage the VMM.
  • Deploy a Virtual Machine in Xen - Learn about workload planning and installing modified guests, unmodified guests, and Windows guests.
  • Explore Advanced Xen Concepts - Build a Xen Cluster, complete a XenVM migration, and discover XenVM backup and recovery solutions.
  • See the Future of Virtualization - See the unofficial Xen road map and what virtual infrastructure holds for tomorrows data center.
  • See Other Virtualization Technologies and How They Compare with Xen - Take a look at the different types of server virtualization, other virtual machine software available, and how they compare with Xen.

It comes complete with a demonstration version of Xen 3.2 on CD-ROM.  The book covers installation, administration, management, monitoring, and deployment planning and strategies.  Xen is leading the way in the open-source community and is now distributed as a standard kernel package for Novells SLES 10 and Red Hats RHEL 5 and Fedora Core 6 Linux distributions.
