About this guide

This page eventually aims to provide an easy step-by-step guide to set up an XCP and OpenStack cloud with a stable release of Debian. That is not possible yet, but we do aim to get together useful resources to help you do things the Debian way.

Overview

  • Xen XCP is a way of managing the bare metal. It also provides a way to run virtual machines (referred to as domU instances in the Xen docs) that are not related to OpenStack.

  • OpenStack provides a cookie-cutter mechanism to run scalable, distributed server instances on-demand. It's ability to duplicate images and manage storage for distributed applications goes beyond the capabilities of XCP.

How to go about it
