Xen Project Community Announces Program for Its Developer Conference

Virtualization Experts Come Together to Accelerate Xen Project Innovation With Microservers, Hyperscale Computing and Embedded Applications

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- The Xen Project Collaborative Project hosted at the Linux Foundation today announced the presenters and full program for the Xen Project Developer Summit annual conference that unites developers, integrators and power users for in-person collaboration and educational instruction. The event will take place in Chicago on August 18-19, 2014.

The Project's second annual developer event highlights best practices, user testimonials and advancements with the industry-leading open source hypervisor. Powering many of the world's largest clouds in production today, Xen Project developers are also leading the way in server density, million-node data centers, graphic-intensive workloads, cloud operating systems and sophisticated enterprise security.

This year's summit will present the most relevant topics to Xen Project developers and users who are pushing the limits on virtualization, ranging from typical server virtualization and cloud computing on x86 servers to new developments with ARM servers, networking, automotive, cloud operating systems, enterprise security and mobility.

"The versatility of Xen Project hypervisor and innovation taking place within our community will be a major focus of the summit," said Lars Kurth, Xen Project Advisory Board Chairman. "The opportunity for in-person collaboration also is invaluable as Xen Project software moves into high-growth markets."

Following is a sampling of confirmed speakers and presentations to be discussed in Chicago:

  • James Bielman, Research and Engineering at Galois, XenStore Mandatory Access Control -- proposes additional security access features for Xen Project software;
  • Mihai Donțu, Technical Project Manager at Bitdefender, Zero-Footprint Guest Memory Introspection from Xen -- discusses how the introspection API in the Xen Project hypervisor can be used to detect, prevent and take action on several categories of malware attacks;
  • James Fehlig, Software Engineer at SUSE Linux, libvirt support for libxenlight -- covers the status of Xen Project libvirt integration and outlines planned improvements;
  • Lars Kurth, Xen Project Advisory Board Chairman, State of Xen Project Software -- gives an overview of the Xen Project development community and community at large;
  • Jun Nakajima, Principal Engineer at Intel Open Source Technology Center, Xen as a High-Performance Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Platform -- introduces Xen as a NFV platform and outlines solutions to remove challenges for deploying the Xen Project hypervisor for NFV applications as well as shares best practices;
  • Nathan Studer, Technical Lead at DornerWorks, Xen and The Art of Certification -- gives an overview of certification requirements in emerging use-cases such as automotive, medical, and avionics and lays out a path toward certifying Xen Project technology in these industries;
  • Don Slutz, Software Architect at Verizon Terremark, Overview of Verizon Cloud Architecture -- presents Verizon Cloud's architecture, design goals and planned contributions to the Xen Project community; and
  • Stefano Stabellini, Senior Principal Software Engineer at Citrix and Xen Project Contributor, Xen on ARM Status Update and Performance Benchmarks -- gives the latest developments with the Xen Project hypervisor on ARM architecture.

Besides presentations, the developer summit will also provide an opportunity for in-depth interactive discussions (Birds of a Feather sessions), which allow deep interaction and collaboration between Xen Project developers and community members. These will happen in a second track alongside the main event.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time t...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
