PracticalXenServer.org is a scenario-based collection of tutorials for designing, building, and operating a “Infrastructure As A Service” (IaaS) cloud service using XenServer.

Each tutorial will be built around a scenario. Each scenario will describe an architecture and and discuss the goals and objectives to be achieved by the arrangement and configuration of hardware and services.

Tutorials will focus specifically on XenServer-specific configuration and administration from the command-line (CLI). At this time, there are no plans for providing any guidance for using XenCenter (XC) except where necessary or for other configuring vendor-specific ancillary components (e.g., storage and/or networking).

To facilitate a more thorough understanding of the material covered in the Tutorials, PracticalXenserver.org also provides a Discussion Forum and links to other XenServer resources available on the Internet.
