Subject Re: Request for assistance with Xenserver
Date Sun, 20 Dec 2015 13:08:25 GMT
When I said pure Xen, I meant XCP. XCP can be seen as an acronym to Xen
hypervisor + XAPI. I recall to have explained that (difference between XCP
and XenServer ) once or twice at the users list. Nowadays, the XCP version
that was provided on top of an OS has been discontinued. However, we can
use the OS we like (we use Debian) and on top of it install Xen hypervisor
and then the XAPI packages. The XAPI project is an active project, as it is
the base of XenServer.

We have a cloud build on top of Debian + Xen server (4.1) + XCP (1.6) that
we have been using with CloudStack (since ACS 4.1). It has been running
since 2013.
