Subject Re: Cloudstack and Xen Cloud Platform(XCP)
Date Sat, 11 Apr 2015 14:09:24 GMT
I am using XCP version 1.6 and CS 4.3. Everything runs just fine. Hence,
Xenserver at the bottom level uses Xen hypervisor and its XAPI(XCP)
packages. So, there is no difference between them.

BTW: the name XCP is no longer used, the project was renamed to XAPI, and
what was discontinued was the development of the ISO that bundled it
together with xen hypervisor and an operating system.

You can find more info here:
