Xen 4.5 Boosts Virtualization Security

The open-source Xen virtualization hypervisor project is out today with a major milestone update providing improved performance and enhanced security features. The Xen Project is managed as a Linux Foundation Collaboration project initiative and has multiple stakeholders, including Intel, Citrix, Amazon and Rackspace.
