What do “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce and the “Xen Project” have in common? They are both 15-year-old hits. Flash forward to today. The Xen Project is used by more than 10 million users, powers some of the largest clouds on the planet, and is starting to build momentum in embedded and safety-conscious market segments. The Xen Project played a key role in developing technologies outside of the hypervisor, like hardware virtualization, and open source security disclosure standards that impact entire industries.

The Xen Project’s success and longevity can be attributed to its flexible architecture, but more importantly to enabling community members to contribute ideas and code, even if they are not core to the project's main use-case. We will share how the project has supported new technologies and ideas (sometimes in the form of failures and sometimes wins) and will derive best practices that may help other projects .
