What Is Xen?
• Xen aims to be able to execute multiple
operating systems on one physical x86
Support popular OS (Linux, Windows XP, NetBSD),
Scalable up to around 100 VMs,
With close-to-native performance.
• Xen is a virtual machine monitor (VMM).
What is Xen?
• The Xen® hypervisor, the powerful open source industry
standard for virtualization, offers a powerful, efficient, and
secure feature set for virtualization of x86, x86_64, IA64,
PowerPC, and other CPU architectures. It supports a wide
range of guest operating systems including Windows®,
Linux®, Solaris®, and various versions of the BSD operating
– releases Xen 3.4 - The Yankee Groups Third Annual
Virtualization Survey reports a significant increase of commercial Xenbased solutions which represent 17 percent of total market share.
– "I think Xen is a great product. It is easy to use. But most importantly is
the very active community around it...", Werner Vogels,CTO from his video interview on
Xen Architecture

Xen Jargon
• The hypervisor
– The Xen VMM
– A particular Xen version which handles low level
• Guest Operating System
– The operating system that Xen hosts
• Domain
– The virtual machine under which a guest operating
system executes
• Guest OS and a domain similar to idea of a
program and a process
Xen Architecture (Cont.)
• Domain0 can use the admin interface to
command the hypervisor,
• Domain0 uses a privileged kernel (Dom0
kernel) capable of accessing the hardware
of the machine,
• Other guests use a DomU kernel which is
typically more restricted.
Xen 3.4.0
• Available from Xen Source ( )
• In association with University of Cambridge
• Support for 64-Bit and 32-way machines
• Supports IntelVT and AMD-V
• Linux support only, Windows expected later this year
• Open Source Product – One of the most actively
maintained projects in the open source community
• $ - Free
• Latest Current Version: Xen 3.4.0
• Xen already is bundled in some distributions,
CentOS 5.3, Fedora Core 4, Debian and SuSE
Professional 9.3
• The Fedora Project has RPMs for installing
Xen, and other Linux distros have prepared
installation packages for Xen as well.
Types of virtualization
• Two categories exist
– Full Virtualization
– Paravirtualization
Paravirtualization -- Xen Approach
• Virtual machine is NOT 100% functionally
equivalent to the hardware
• Xen uses paravirtualization instead
• Paravirtualization is a process where the guest
operating system is modified to run in parallel
with other modified systems
– Advantage: Improved performance
– Disadvantage: The hosted operating system must
be modified before it can be hosted by the Xen
Hypervisor (can be difficult)
Hypervisor Control
• In Xen
– Domain0 is given greater
access to the hardware
and the hypervisor. It has:
• A guest OS running above
the domain
• Hypervisor Manager
software to manage
elements within other
existing domains.
• In VMWare
– Host OS acts underneath
the domain.

Guest OS on Domain X

HVM in Xen
• Paravirtualization
– Xen patches the kernel.
• HVM for full virtualization
– Xen supports full virtualization so that the kernel
can run on it unpatched.
– For example, both Intel VT and AMD Pacifica
processors will include such support.

Live Migration
• Xen supports live migration over LAN,
• Uses ‘pre-copy’ method:
Iteratively copy memory,
Pause the VM,
Copy rest of the memory,
Start VM in on new machine.
• ARP is used to signal the network that the
IP has moved.
• Disk is provided by NAS.
Requirements For Running Xen
• A working Linux distribution using the GRUB
bootloader and running on a P6-class (or newer) CPU,
• More than 1GB RAM (suggested)
• iproute2, bridge-utils, gcc, binutils, make, libcurldevel, zlib-dev, python-dev,
• Don’t need to reinstall to try it:
– Build Xen in your existing Linux install (which will
become Domain0),
– Use a file backed filesytem for guests.
• You can try it using a bootable live CD.
Current Status (Xen 3.x)
Secure isolation between VMs,
Resource control and QoS,
Only guest kernel needs to be ported,
All user-level apps and libraries run unmodified
Linux 2.4/2.6, NetBSD, CentOS 5, FreeBSD, Plan9,
and more
• Execution performance is close to native,
• Supports the same hardware as Linux x86,
• Live Relocation of VMs between Xen nodes.
