1M Euros for XCP-ng innovation
FOSDEM will take place this weekend, and this year, exceptionally, the event will be 100% online.
We are of course sad not to be able to share a beer with you directly on the spot, but it is also a very good opportunity for our non-European users to be able to exchange with us thanks to the chat that will be available during all the weekend (Mainly during the day in the CET timezone).
EDIT - last minute addition: we will also have the pleasure of having some folks of the Xen project present on our booth too to exchange with all of you! So if you have question on the Xen Project it's the perfect opportunity.
See you soon!

RE: Backup NG
@mrchip Backup NG is now the standard backup section. We made a rework on all backup features a while ago and we kept legacy backup and backup New Generation (NG) during the transition period.
So, on old video you can have both, but the thing you see about backup NG should be valid for the current "backup" section of your appliance.
They talk about us
