Clarkson University Virtualization Center
Since 2003, members of the Clarkson Open Source Institute and the Applied Computer Science Labs at Clarkson University have been heavily involved in virtualization. Here exists a compilation of resources and projects relating to virtualization that Clarkson University students and faculty are involved with.
- Running Xen: A Hands-On Guide to the Art of Virtualization (installing and using Xen)
- The Definitive Guide to the Xen Hypervisor (developing with Xen)
