The Zen of XEN

Yikes - It's been awhile.. Things have been crazy. I've changed job position since last entry, started working on a few new projects, well enuf' 'bout that.

Today I sucessfully installed Xen on an old (or elderly) PC of mine. Dom0 (host) running Ubunto Linux v5.04 and two virtual instances (guests), one running ttyLinux and one running a debootstrapped version of Debian. Smooth!! I am planning on a similar setup at work, where each project can be given an instance in a loopback filesystem. Instances can be booted when needed with a single instance running an Oracle DB (well actually Oracle might be hard to put on a virtual instance) and a PostgreSQL db which can be used by all instances when needed..
