(Free and Net)BSD on Xen Roadmap

As time goes on more OSes are getting Dom0 support, so there's a growing need to provide a platform independent set of tools from which to operate Xen. This talk will expose the different mechanisms used on NetBSD that diverge from the Linux approach, and how Xen is improving its userspace tools to provide a more platform independent support.

The talk also touches upon various features that BSD provides or plans to provide with Xen, thus presenting a coherent roadmap view of where we've come from, and what lies ahead.

What's in this talk:

  • Xen and BSD
  • Status updates from the world of BSD
  • Ecosystem/userbase
