A Xen domu runs at > almost host speed, with very little overhead Full ACK, even if we've still seen some mid scale university or company NOCs where the CTOs / admins are really working with headless VirtualBox as their "main HV". Especially if your main target is to run open source based operating systems like Linux or NetBSD (on i386/686) on NOC scale XEN PV was and is - so my point and for several different reasons (performance, stability, scalability) - the best choice in any case. We hardly want to and do avoid any full virtualization on internet servers. We use XEN since the early stages in many different productive environments - compared and compare all the current major virtualization solutions around - from VMware products over kvm to VirtualBox. It is interesting to hear and read what kind of "crazy" stories or just "misunderstandings" are around about xen i.e. compared to VMware - i.e. from VMware marketers... VirtualBox is our preferred HV on typical Desktop environment (because of the easier graphics acceleration and USB stuff), but i hope that en will close up here too... cheers, Niels. -- --- Niels Dettenbach Syndicat IT&Internet http://www.syndicat.com/
