How To Lock Down A XenServer

2 min read

Way back in the year 2003, an open source project was developed by Ian Pratt as a research project at the University of Cambridge. The said project was named as XenServer, an open source software for the different purposes like for the security of runs of multiple applications and operating systems on a single device simplifies IT management of applications and server, and enables the automation and consolidation to lessen costs. The open source virtualization is managed by Citrix which offers a business support and services for the users who needs a great support.

This history does not stop in that way but continues to grow and innovated into one company with great people working with the developer. Even nowadays, the virtualization platform is being used by many server virtualization businesses in a most affordable and cost-effective consolidation.

Xen Hypervisor, formerly called XenSource Inc. was created by the developer Ian Pratt together with other great technology inventors. Together with the foundation of the company is the release of the new version, Xen 10 but in a short time, it was later on upgraded into Xen 20. XenServer is the top open source virtualization platform under the Xen Project Hypervisor. It has served so many individuals even up until now and will be in the future.

Everyone may know how to begin the software but doesn’t know how to lock down. This scenario is common mostly to the new users, so we will discuss that here in this article so read along and discover how. It will only take some time to read but enables your question answered.

Since Xen Project is powered by Citrix, customer services are offered to deal with users with problems such as the mentioned scenario above which is about the locking down of the software. The lockdown will be done in its Virtual Machines (VM’s). It is locked down for the purpose of securing VPN connections, mostly virtual machines for business.

Another purpose is locking down software whenever used at work or when traveling, and prevents VM’s from changing their own unicast addresses. The open source virtualization is tested as a powerful tool for running multiple virtual machines and can handle server workloads. So if something happens if host power failures, VM’s had errors and does not appear in XenCenters, you can shut down the machine then reset and contact support from Citrix.
