XCP Toolstack Improvements

Registered by Mike McClurg on 2012-10-02

The XCP Toolstack is an open source, server and cloud virtualization platform which provides a rich management API on top of the Xen hypervisor. The purpose of this blueprint is to discuss improvements to the Ubuntu XCP Toolstack that we wish to make during the Q-series development cycle. We would also like to discuss ideas for improving the interaction between the XCP Toolstack and other Cloud and Server managment interfaces, such as OpenStack, CloudStack, and Juju.

Rationale:

As a type-1 hypervisor, Xen provides various architectural benefits over KVM which make it well suited for the cloud. The XCP Toolstack is a Xen management platform which makes Xen easy to use, and integrates well with OpenStack and CloudStack.

Goals:

1) To bring the XCP Toolstack in Ubuntu 13.10 on-par with XCP 1.6 and XenServer 6.1 in terms of feature parity and performance.

2) To build a development community around the XCP Toolstack and Ubuntu.
