I spent a few days in beautiful Ossining, New York this week, attending the spring Xen Summit at IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center. While most of the surrounding area was still underwater from this weekend's nor'easter, the folks at IBM had the good sense to build their facility on top of a hill. The auditorium in which most of the talks were held had a kind of 70's ski lodge vibe to it, so maybe the architecture was influenced by the altitude.
While there, I gave a presentation on how Solaris handles panics triggered by Xen. The short version is: if Xen can't be trusted anymore, we let Solaris take over and bring us in for a soft landing. The longer version can be seen in the slideset available here.
