Xen Orchestra is an Open Source web-based solution for XCP-ng. It allows administration, backup and more of any number of hosts from one UI. For a quick deployment, you can go into your XCP-ng host console and type this to deploy the turnkey appliance (XOA, for”Xen Orchestra virtual Appliance”):
bash -c "$(curl -s http://xoa.io/deploy)"
Note: XOA is a virtual machine with everything installed, you need to give it another IP address than your host to reach it.
Note 2: you can alternatively chose to deploy it anywhere else than a XCP-ng host, by installing it from the sources.
For Windows user who want a heavy client (need to install it on your OS) you can download XCP-ng Center here.
