Summit in New York City on September 15, 2014!

Our second annual meeting for Xen Projects users, integrators, and
service providers includes a great range talks for little more than
the price of a good meal!

- What's Coming in the 4.5 Release

Steven Maresca (Zentific LLC) describes the use of the Zazen security
framework and how it can improve your implementation.

- Xen in Openstack: An Overview with SUSE Cloud

Peter Linnell (SUSE) talks about Xen Project support in Openstack with
a demonstration.  With all the buzz about Openstack these days, this
is an excellent chance to see how Xen Project can play a role in your
current or future Openstack implementation.

- Using and Understand Xen4CentOS

Johnny Hughes (CentOS Project) will outline how to use the Xen4CentOS
project to enable the Xen Project Hypervisor on CentOS.  He will also
discuss the new CentOS Virtualization SIG which has grown from the
Xen4CentOS effort.

- Deploying C and Java Applications Directly on Xen using OSv

Don Marti (Cloudius) discusses how to use OSv to create lightweight
VMs directly on the Hypervisor without the burden of virtualizing a
full multiuser operating system like Linux.  The result is small, fast
VMs like those promised with the latest Linux Container technologies,
but with an EXCELLENT security footprint!

Olivier Lambert (Vates LLC) will present the current state of this
project and plans for the future.  If you've ever wished for a good
Web-based UI for Xen Project, you'll want to attend!

- Provisioning a Large Number of XAPI-based Security Appliances

Grant McWilliams (Sound Linux Training and Consulting) delivers a
stimulating account of provisioning special security devices built
with the Xen Project Hypervisor.  Even if you don't plan on doing
something similar, this talk provides some interesting and challenging

- Introduction to the Advanced Security Features of the Xen Project Hypervisor

Russ Pavlicek, Xen Project Evangelist (Citrix), covers many of the
security features of the hypervisor, many of which are not known even
by established users.  While not difficult to use, they do require
someone to make the decision to use them, so this talk will educate
attendees as to their options.

- User Jam

This is your chance to discuss anything which is of interest to the
user community.  We'll cover the current state of the user community
and solicit input for future events and software development, as well
as general feedback.
