The Xen Hypervisor was built for the Cloud from the outset: when Xen was designed, we anticipated a world, which today is known as cloud computing. Today, Xen powers the largest clouds in production. This talk explores success criteria, architecture, trade-offs and challenges for cloudy hypervisors.  
It is intended for users and developers and starts with a brief introduction to Xen and XCP, their architecture, shine some light on common challenges for KVM and Xen, such as the NUMA performance tax and securing the cloud.
