XenServer Administration Handbook: Practical Recipes for Successful Deployments

File Size: 4.72 Mb

With more than 150,000 organizations running XenServer virtualization in a production environment, it is easily one of the most popular platforms available for virtual machine (VM) management. Since its inception as a research project of the University of Cambridge in 2001, the core Xen Project hypervisor has consistently pushed the boundaries of data center computing. The XenServer technology was acquired from XenSource in 2007 by Citrix, and the technology has evolved to support highdensity virtualization for both cloud and desktop workloads.

XenServer furthered its leadership role when, in 2013, Citrix partnered with NVIDIA to deliver true hardware graphics virtualization using NVIDIA GRID and XenServer to define a new class of virtual workload: the high-performance graphics workstation. Even more recently, this new type of virtual workload has been expanded to leverage both Intel and AMD video cards for Windows- and Linux-based Guest VMs.

This is the environment XenServer administrators are increasingly being called upon to optimize and manage. This book seeks to provide practical guidance for how to plan, deploy, operate, and troubleshoot a modern XenServer environment. Our goal is that regardless of whether you manage a modest installation of a few blades or multiple global enterprise data centers, if you’ve found XenServer to be a critical component of your organization, then there will be valuable content for the successful operation of your XenServer deployment.
