So I was wondering, we did not get that much of a response about this
(or perhaps we did, but not in public, in which case, ignore me).

I know, holidays are not helping, etc. but, anyway, should we turn this
e-mail into a blog post to send out in early January? I'm up for it if
we think it's a good thing to do.
It is probably the holidays: I know that Cloudious Systems (the makers of OSv) are interested showing OSv running on top of Xen and so do the XO guys.

Indeed we are!
I'm from Cloudius-systems, we develop OSv [1] a new OS for the cloud.
Xen is our major HV target, and will be happy to demo OSv running on Xen at the booth.
Both myself and Pekka (cc) will be at FOSDEM.

A few features we can demo:
  • Quick boot (less than a second)
  • Running software appliances with OSv: OSv and HAProxy, OSv and Cassandra and maybe more.
  • OSv superior performance for known benchmarks (like netperf) 
  • Different features like OSv CLI, API,  GUI
  • Deep dive in to our code, if anyone interested
Please let me know what do you think and what we need to do to make this happen.

Best Regards (and happy new year!)

A blog post could be a good idea (tying it up with the DevRoom program, which has not yet been published).
Another approach would be to reach out pro-actively to people we want to do demos (e.g. Samsung, people/projects with RT schedulers, ...). Unfortunuately I will struggle to do this given that I am in China.
