The April meeting of the Triangle Linux Users Group will be held at 7:00
PM on Thursday April 13, 2006 at Red Hat. Directions are available from
our website at http://www.trilug.org/.
Matt Frye will present an overview of the Xen project, Xen's relative
strengths and weaknesses, and the basics of installation and configuration.
Xen is a virtual machine monitor (VMM) for x86-compatible computers. Xen
can securely execute multiple virtual machines, each running its own OS,
on a single physical system with close-to-native performance. Learn
