Re: [Xen-users] Need A 30,000 Foot View Of XCP

I'd say, as others have advised, to start with XenCenter.  Yes, it is free, and 
you can connect to XCP with it.

I use OpenXenManager sometimes, as well, but it is incomplete, and, 
unfortunately, development on it has ceased, so I'm forced back to XenCenter 
much of the time.  A shame - I have a hard time understanding why both VMware 
and Citrix force you to use Windows-based management tools.  Oh well.

Openstack might be good down the road, but if you're not familiar with XCP, 
then I wouldn't start there.  Openstack is very complex to set up, with lots of 
manual steps to get it running.  I've worked with Xen, XenServer, and XCP in 
various forms for 4-5 years, now, and I still haven't managed to get Openstack 
up and running (part of that is time constraint).  So, start with XenCenter, 
once you're comfortable with XCP + XenCenter, you can move on to Openstack.
