Vita Rara: A Life Uncommon


New Server - A Little Xen

Categories: |

The past week has been a trial by fire. We purchased a new server to handle hosting sites, email, clients, etc. Dual quad core Xeon, 16GB RAM and lots of drive space. This machine was too much to waste on a single installation of Linux so I decided it was time to learn virtualization and Xen in particular.

Xen is a hypervisor that makes it possible to run multiple operating systems on one machine as though it were multiple machines. Basically it allows you to make one computer look like a whole bunch of computers. Each "computer" can even run a different operating system.
