Date : Thursday 19 April 2007

 For the month of April, MerriLUG is proud to host Christoph
Doerbeck, who will be speaking on machine virtualization on Linux.  A
live demo of the Xen-based virtualization features in RHEL 5 (Red Hat
Enterprise Linux, Version 5) is planned.

About the Presentation

 During the past few years, machine virtualization has emerged as a
key technology in the high-tech industry.  Virtualization creates
"virtual machines"

In this session, Christoph will speak on:

* What problems virtualization can solve
* A high-level overview of various virtualization models
* Review open-source implementations of said models
* Cover hardware technologies found in modern CPUs which aid virtualization
* What to look for when purchasing hardware for virtualization

 He will demonstrates the capabilities of virtualization found in
RHEL5.  Time permitting, he will even show us how to install Windows
XP as a virtualized guest.
