The Xen Project, Collaboration Project hosted at The Linux Foundation, today announced the release of Xen Project 4.6. The new release comes equipped with greater security, improvements to network throughput as well as upgraded migration.
With this release, Xen Project’s Virtual Machine Introspection (VMI) is natively supported on both Intel and ARM chips, making it an ideal API for developers building monitoring and security applications. Additional updates allow for increased stability, scalability and usability to create a stable baseline for third-party security applications, including malware detection, forensics, security auditing and more.
Updates to the VMI create the foundation for easier integration with IT monitoring tools for more centralized management, while the inclusion of Intel Cache Allocation Technology (CAT) and Memory Bandwidth Monitoring (MBM) enable additional system resources monitoring.
