Xen: Virtual Machines

What is Xen Hypervisor?

The Xen hypervisor is a layer of software running directly on computer hardware replacing the operating system thereby allowing the computer hardware to run multiple guest operating systems concurrently. Support for x86, x86-64, Itanium, Power PC, and ARM processors allow the Xen hypervisor to run on a wide variety of computing devices and currently supports Linux, NetBSD,
FreeBSD, Solaris, Windows, and other common operating systems as guests running on the hypervisor.
The community develops and maintains the Xen hypervisor as a free solution licensed under the GNU General Public License.
