The article presents information on Xen 3.0 software from Xen. The software plants itself into a Linux source code tree as the equivalent of a new central processing unit architecture. Compiling Linux with Xen as the target architecture will result with a Linux that has paravirtualization, a technique wherein an altered version of an operating system redirects privileged operations. Xen is easy to install and run. The open source Xen is said to be no lightweight. It is uncommonly flexible when it comes to storage. Its configuration parameters are stored in text files, and its management interface is a small set of simple command-line directives.
