Subject [PROPOSAL] Support pure Xen as a hypervisor
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2014 15:40:04 GMT
Historically CloudStack has used Xen and XenServer interchangeably to refer
to any XenAPI based implementation.  With the recent release of Xen Project
4.4 (, and
interest in alternate architectures like ARM, the loose definition of our
Xen support could be confusing.  In this two part effort I propose that
CloudStack 4.4 be cleansed to ensure that all Xen references become
XenServer references, and second that an alternate hypervisor type of
"XenProject" be introduced for pure Xen which could either support libvirt
or  libxl (preference for libvirt given the 4.4 work to improve the
interface and broader support for libvirt in general).

Cross posted to users to for broader comment.
