XenAPI library for OpenStack projects

This library provides the support functions needed to connect to and manage a XenAPI-based hypervisor, such as Citrix's XenServer.

Features

The following features are supported since 0.3.1:

  • VDI streaming It will allow the library user to create XenServer VDI from a gzipped image data stream; or create gzipped image data stream from a specified XenServer VDI. By comparing to the existing dom0 glance plugin, the image data gets processed on the fly via streams. So it doesn't create intermediate files. And it completely uses the formal VDI import or export APIs when it exchanges VDI data with XenServer.
  • XAPI pool With this feature, we can deploy OpenStack on hosts which belong to a XAPI pool, so that we can get the benefits from XAPI pool features: e.g. it's able to live migrate instance between two hosts without moving the disks on shared storage.

The following features are supported since 0.3.2:

  • Bootstrap compute node via a single command Now we can support to boostrap an OpenStack compute node by running the command of xenapi_bootstrap from a VM which is running on XenServer. At the moment, only CentOS 7.x is supported.
