The Xen.org community and Citrix are arranging an interesting event for late June in Berlin called Xen Direction Europe 2009.
Compared to the well-known Xen Summits, this seems easier to understand for somebody that is not a Xen hacker (read: it contains more marketing material) but no less interesting as the agenda includes some presentations that are probably worth the visit like:
- Virtualization – it’s not just for servers anymore Intel
- Highly available virtual infrastructures based on Xen Lufthansa Systems
- HXEN: Hosted Xen Hypervisor Project Citrix
Of course the last one is especially interesting as it will cover the progress of the new hosted VMM architecture that will power a Citrix product called XenWorkstation, at least accordingly to the virtualization.info sources.
One session promises to be very funny (underline is ours):
Virtualization of mission-critical deployments Oracle with Xen: Oracle users choose Oracle VM
Like the Oracle users have a real chance.
