This book offers complete coverage of Xen, including Version 3.2. "Virtualization with Xen" is the first book to demonstrate to readers how to install, administer, and maintain a virtual infrastructure based on XenSource's 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. This title lets you explore Xen's 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; and, explore Advanced Xen concepts. This title also lets you 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 tomorrow's data center; see other Virtualization Technologies and how they compare with Xen; and, take a look at the different types of server virtualization, other virtual machine software available, and how they compare with Xen. Complete with a demonstration version of Xen 3.2 on CD-ROM, Xen has the lead in the open-source community; now distributed as a standard kernel package for Novell's SLES 10 and Red Hat's RHEL 5 and Fedora Core 6 Linux distributions. The title covers installation, administration, management, monitoring, and deployment planning and strategies.
