An interview with the maintainers of the Xen packages for Debian: Bastian Blank and Guido Trotter.

Why Xen, and how did you get involved with it?

Bastian: Some years ago, the whole virtualization stuff was at the beginning. I took a peak at VMWare, but it was a nasty software. Then I found Xen.

Guido: I read about Xen during university while studying operating system, and it seemed a very useful and exciting platform. I proceeded trying it out, installing it at ISPs I was consulting for, and writing my master thesis on it. Then I joined Google, where I worked on the Ganeti project, to provide a cluster-level virtualization environment based on top of Xen (and later KVM too).
