Hear ye, hear ye… we are pleased to announce that a pre-release of an upcoming version of the XenServer server virtualization platform is now available for download on XenServer.org.
 
Since releasing version 7.0 in May, the XenServer engineering team has been working fervently to prepare the platform with the latest innovations in server virtualization technology. As a precursor, a pre-release containing the prerequisites for enabling a number of powerful (and really cool!) new features has been made available for download on XenServer.org.
 
The following is a brief description of some of the feature-prerequisites included in this pre-release:
 
Xen4.7:  Specifically, support for "live-patching" of XenServer hosts
 
Kernel 4.4: Updated kernel to support future feature considerations
 
VM import/export performance: The importing/exporting of VMs now averages 2x faster than the previous version
 
We encourage visitors to download the pre-release and provide us with your feedback.
 
As always, we look forward to working with the XenServer community to make the next major release of XenServer the best version ever!
 

Cheers!
