I also failed to get "Linux pack " iso. Could anyone tell me where can I get it please?

Can I install linux VM on XCP host,if there is no Linux pack?

Great news. I want a bit clerification. I am installing XEN 3.4.1 on various cloud systems running on Supercomputer for scalabily testing. I don't understand the difference between running XEN 3.4.1 hypervisor on cloud based systems, compare to the Xen Cloud Platform (XCP) 0.1.

Any help?

Xen Community:


Xen Cloud Platform (XCP) 0.1 is an effort by several community members to create a complete open source virtual infrastructure solution (Hypervisor + Management Toolstack) as a reference architecture for cloud deployments.


This 0.1 release provides a stable platform on which to build, and to provoke community discussion about the final form that XCP 1.0 should take. Developers, testers, and users are all invited to try the XCP 0.1 solution and help drive the community toward the future release of XCP 1.0.


The base platform proposed contains the following features:


    * Latest Xen 3.4.1

    * Linux 2.6.27 Kernel

    * Windows PV Drivers, Microsoft Certified (Binary Only)

    * XAPI Enterprise-class Management Tool Stack

          o VM Lifecycle: Live snapshots, checkpoint, migration

          o Resource Pools: Safe live relocation, auto configuration, DR

          o Host Configuration: Flexible storage management, networking, power management

          o Event Tracking: Progress, notification

          o Secure Communication using SSL

          o Upgrade and Patching Capabilities

          o Real-time Performance Monitoring and Alerting

    * Basic SR-IOV Support

    * CDROM and Network Host Installer

    * Full Featured “xe” CLI and web services API
