The Xen Hypervisor was built for the Cloud from the outset: when Xen was designed, we anticipated a world, which today is known as cloud computing. Today, Xen powers the largest clouds in production. This talk explores success criteria, architecture, trade-offs and challenges for cloudy hypervisors.  
It is intended for users and developers and starts with a brief introduction to Xen and its architecture, shine some light on common challenges for KVM and Xen, such as the NUMA performance tax and securing the cloud. It will introduce the concept of domain disaggregation as an approach to increase security, robustness and scalability: all important factors for building clouds at scale. The talk will conclude with an update on Xen support in Linux, Xen for ARM servers and other exciting developments in the Xen community and their implications for building open source clouds!
