Hi I'm Oliver Allpress, I work @ a University local to me in the South East UK. My job title is IT Service Manager (Storage and Virtualisation). My team and I manage the University's datacenters, server hardware, storage and virtualisation needs.
I came across XCP-ng on Tom Lawrence's Youtube channel ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHkYOD-3fZbuGhwsADBd9ZQ ) and started getting into it.
Thanks for all the hard work on the project and nice to meet you all.
I am Ivan from Kyiv/Ukraine. Used to work with Xen years ago - and only for x86_64 platform. Currently getting back to using latest version of XenServer for x86_64, considering starting to use it for ARM64 and looking forward for helping in porting in to MIPS.
Registering here cause I am trying to find listeners and speakers for those conferences:
My name looks funny to English people and misspelled to Germans (it's German). My name is Pascal FUKS.
I'm from Belgium and using Citrix Xen since the first version. I'm a former Citrix Service Provider (CSP). But, the prices became exaggerated for small customers, and my former company stopped all activities in 2017.
I'm still using and old version of Citrix Xen Server on a 3 hosts clusters and starts to prepare an XCP-ng migration.
My first goal, coming here, is to exchange with other skilled (and less skilled) members about configurations, workarounds, and nice to have features.
Cheers to all,
Hi, my name is Alexander, I'm workinf as an system administrator in the system integration department. Currently I'm testing XCP-ng with HA-iSCSI and HA-lizard and XOCE to evaluate, if XO is usable for our needs and if we should get a support contract.
Hey thanks for both of you for the intro here And welcome in our community!
Hi, I am Karlis, I manage small server/network infrastructure, our VMs are hosted on Xenserver. Some time ago we needed to redesign management and backup system for our VMs and we found XO. Now we are in process to upgrade our hosts to XCP-NG.
Hi! Funny thing: we did the same "process" here XS, then XS+XO, then XCP-ng+XO
Hi @karlisi same thing happened to us at work
Hello! I am Esyx. I am relatively new to virtualization. My background is mainly with consumer level hardware, and doing things on bare-metal. After playing around with an RPi for the past year or so, and exploring the things I can do in terms of self-hosting for my extended family... I have decided to start building a home lab in hopes of learning system administration, and hope to start going for certifications soon to make a career change. I chose to use XCP-NG, (also using Xen Orchestra), because I love what you guys are doing. Keep up the great work!
well, my name should be obvious, as it is displayed in that neat little html element next to the date above. What do I do? I do all sorts of IT related things in a mid-sized enterprise in Austria. Fairly new to all the virtualization stuff as I once upon a time just was just a software developer and now I sit here in a sysadmin chair XD Even the programming times were at the time Java 1.4 came out. Sooo quite a bit rusty on all edges
I am happy to say, that I can operate pretty free here. So I can test out different new things I have not seen yet and try to integrate that in our company if useful. xcp-ng is one of the things to try.
Hello everybody, my name is Martín, from Spain (so sorry for my poor English). I've been administering xenserver since 2010, fortunatelley, not too hard, beucause it works like a charm the most of the time. After being stalled in xenserver 7.2 for years, I've finally convinced my boss to move to xcp-ng, so here I am, with a new pool of 5 Lenovo SN550 and a fresh install of XCP-NG. Initially, we are doing with xcp-ng center to smooth the transition, although I'm running a XOA VM for a long, curiously I can't register it, but it is another story that I'll post as soon as I find the correct section.
Thanks for all your effort on the project and selfless help.
I go by machine22,Not from around here Alien I am cyber security Analyst by Profession. I like running Labs before deploying systems in a live environment where i begin pentesting or learning a new technology and the rest you know what comes. I am a huge advocate for open source software when bored i like to break things looking for weaknesses.
I am the CTO at a technology company, we are a big VMWare house (for now ). Really excited to dive into more XCP-NG. We did work with Citrix a couple of years ago, as a part of a very lengthy quotation process, but ultimately decided to stick with VMWare.
We are a software development company, so love the fact XCP-NG is open source, and we can contribute / modify it as we see fit.
Thanks @olivierlambert for all the work in getting it off the ground;
Welcome @jgibbons !
Feel free to share here, any work/contribution but also all your questions
Also, XCP-ng is a real teamwork thing: both inside Vates but also with this great community.
@olivierlambert Really looking forward to exploring its capabilities!
@olivierlambert Thank you so much for your hard work! XCP-ng is incredible!
Hello everyboby, my name is Peter, i am living in Austria.
I'm a noob to XCP-ng, i used Vitrualbox and VMWare for a while in home use.
After i looked to a lot of youtube videos during lockdown i desided to rebuild an older PC and install XCP-ng on as replacement.
This summer i would like to replace/virtualize some old machines my Sportclub uses for tournament results and their digital locking system and migrate them to one machine with XCP-ng installed.
So i have a lot to learn.
I'm here because I love self-hosting and I want to meet others who love self-hosting as well. I'm new to using XCP-ng but I think I'll enjoy it, and I prefer virtual machines over Docker. I will be using Docker, but using Docker within a virtual machine will isolate it even further and layers are always healthy. I love Linux, but it'll be cool to try out Windows Hyper-V Server within a virtual machine as well. I'm down to chat with anyone about anything self-hosting, don't be shy.
