At present a few server-side pieces are not open-source. These are (from 
1. the heartbeat/liveset management daemon which is needed for HA (xapi talks 
to this via a simple interface)
2. some 3rd party FC tools
3. a few storage backends (NetApp, EQL and StorageLink)

Some pieces of the XenServer product (eg 'Workload Balancing') are actually 
off-box windows services which talk to xapi via the API. These are closed.

Actually there is some basic linux P2V stuff in there: the install CD doubles 
as a P2V client, which uploads to a special 'P2V' VM
