Scale11x: Virtualization with Xen and XCP

Mirage: extreme specialisation of virtual appliances

Infrastructure-as-a-Service compute clouds provide a flexible hardware platform on which customers host applications as a set of appliances, e.g., web servers or databases. Each appliance is a VM image containing an OS kernel and userspace processes, within which applications access resources via traditional APIs such as POSIX. However, the flexibility provided by the hypervisor comes at a cost: the addition of another layer in the already complex software stack which impacts runtime performance, and increases the size of the trusted computing base.

Xen @ Google

Google uses virtualization for internal corporate infrastructure. As part of this, Google have developed a number of tools, some open source, for managing the Xen deployment. The presentation will describe the technical infrastructure used, the internal workflows and machine management processes, and the specific use-cases for virtualization.
