xcp-xapi - XCP's XenAPI server
The Xen Cloud Platform (XCP) is an open source enterprise-ready server
virtualization and cloud computing platform, with support for a range
of guest operating systems, Linux network and storage support.
XCP addresses the needs of cloud providers, hosting services and data
centers by combining the isolation and multitenancy capabilities of the
Xen hypervisor with enhanced security, storage and network
virtualization technologies to offer a rich set of virtual
infrastructure cloud services. The platform also address user
requirements for security, availability, performance and isolation
across both private and public clouds.
XCP consolidates server workloads, enables savings in power, cooling,
and management costs and thus contributing to environmentally
sustainable computing, an increased ability to adapt to ever-changing
IT environments, an optimized use of existing hardware, and an improved
level of IT reliability.
This is the XenAPI server, which provides the control plane for XCP
hosts and resource pools. To manage the XenAPI server, you should use
either the XML-RPC based API, the xe command line tool, or a graphical
user interface such as OpenXenManager.
