Book Description
Xen, the open source virtualization tool, is a system administrator's dream. Xen is a free, high-performance virtual machine monitor that lets you consolidate your hardware and finally put those unused cycles to use—without sacrificing reliability, performance, or scalability.
The Book of Xen explains everything you need to know in order to use Xen effectively, including installation, networking, memory management, and virtualized storage. You'll also learn how to use Xen and standard Linux tools to take snapshot backups, perform QoS operations on network traffic, and limit over-aggressive disk users.
Authors Chris Takemura and Luke S. Crawford show you how to:
  • Provide virtual hosting for dozens of users, each with their own individual needs
  • Install and manage multiple guests, including various flavors of Linux, NetBSD, Solaris, and Windows
  • Choose the right virtual storage options for your needs
  • Migrate your systems seamlessly and create new images
  • Tune and benchmark your systems to make them as fast as possible
  • Troubleshoot Xen's most common problems like network and memory management
Expert advice is priceless when it comes to running a complicated open source virtualization technology like Xen. You'll get the advice you need in The Book of Xen.
