XenServer, other features notwithstanding - is essentially Xen + XAPI
atop a Linux distribution. While there are other important pieces, the
piece that CloudStack interacts with is XAPI, so it assumes if it is
interacting with XAPI that it is interacting with XenServer. (as it
does with XCP, and in this case with Xen + XAPI on Ubuntu)
