The Xen Project supports some of the biggest clouds in production today and is moving into new industries, like security and automotive. Usually, you will use Xen indirectly as part of a commercial product, a distro, a hosting or cloud service and only indirectly use Xen. By following this session you will learn how Xen and virtualization work under the hood exploring high-level topics like architecture concepts related to virtualization to more technical attributes of the hypervisor like memory management (ballooning), virtual CPUs, scheduling, pinning, saving/restoring and migrating VMs.
