Subject Re: Opportunity to contribute in Apache CloudStack
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2016 13:06:17 GMT
I can probably elaborate on this a bit. Currently Xen (XenServer) uses XAPI
to interface with Cloudstack. This works for the most part but we would
ideally want to use libvirt as communication interface. This will enable a
lot of nice things like being able to support disk formats other than VHD
and overall better integration with other providers.

Now XenServer does not work with libvirt so we would have to go with
opensource Xen. I have done some basic analysis around it. Feel free to
reach out to me if you have any questions.
