Lab on a Laptop

The last demo we showed at the xVM launch was a demo of xVM VirtualBox 2.0.  Markus, who assembled the demo, put together a really nice blog entry on how it all works.  Check it out!  You can watch me giving the demo in the movie player below.

Hi,

Im really interested in xVM system for my home private ML150 G5 server. Do you have HCL for xVM or know if my server will handle xVM?

Regards,
Michal

Regarding a HCL for xVM Server, we will publish a specific list of systems that we have tested against in the future. For now, it's sufficient to understand that xVM Server should work on systems with :

\* AMD-V or Intel VT-X enabled chips
\* 4 GB or more of RAM
\* locally attached SAS or SATA drives
\* remote NFS or CIFS storage
\* networking cards that have drivers in OpenSolaris written to the GLDv3 spec

Again, we will be working on a specific list of systems that have been qualified by the time of our release.
\* Note to all that the above specifications are just an estimate and shouldn't be taken as gospel.

To clarify from my last comment, the specs that I listed are for xVM Server.
xVM VirtualBox is different in that it will run on almost any x86 system.
For more information on xVM VirtualBox, please see :
