Title: Cloud Computing and the Xen Community
Abstract: The Xen Hypervisor open source project was founded in 2003 as a direct result of Cambridge Universities XenoServer research project that defined Cloud Computing as we know it today. In 2006 Amazon Web Services built their business on top of Xen, followed by Slicehost and many other cloud and hosting providers. In other words: the Xen project provided the technology that enabled many multi-million dollar businesses to thrive. However, until recently cloud and service providers have not been active members of the Xen community. This talk will look at characteristics of the Xen community, its evolution over time, consider licensing and related topics. We will also look at incentives to engage service providers and help them become more active members of your open source community.
