|Project=Graphics Virtualization
|Date=July 11 2017
|Contact=(OpenXT) Rich Persaud, Christopher Clark
|Desc=GPU virtualization is used in Server VDI, Automotive, Desktops and Laptops. GPU vendors have different approaches to virtualization of 3D graphics (NVIDIA GRID, AMD MxGPU, Intel GVT, Imagination PowerVR OmniShield), while software-based graphics virtualization may not support modern video and user interface animations. Gaming is one of the few growth areas for PCs and CAD can be done via remote desktop. What are current best practices for Xen users and developers to achieve high-performance 3D graphics on Windows, Linux and Android? Is KVM better than Xen for graphics virtualization?
* Intel GVT-d and GVT-G with local multi-monitor display
* Zero-copy display of guest framebuffers: Intel GVT, ARM with and without IOMMU
** Baboval 2013: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/sites/events/files/slides/Zero-Copy%20Display%20of%20Guest%20Framebuffers%20using%20GEM.pdf
* Display management: GVT, PV-displ, Qubes compositor, OpenXT surfman
* HID virtualization (secure input, seamless mouse-display switching, multi-touch)

|Project=Xen Toolstacks for Server and Edge Use Cases
|Date=July 11 2017
|Contact=(OpenXT) Rich Persaud, Christopher Clark, Chris Rogers
|Desc=Many Xen toolstacks have come and gone. Libxenlight was created to provide a common base layer upon which higher-level toolstacks could be built. What is the roadmap for libxenlight to meet the needs of servers, local/enterprise managed clients, OTA update for embedded and mobile devices, unikernels, containers and automated testing? Can we reduce duplication among libvirt, xapi (Ocaml), xenrt (Python) and OpenXT (Haskell) toolstacks? Can Xen management tools compete with DevOps expectations set by the fast-moving container ecosystem?
* LibXL
** configurable build (equivalent to hypervisor Kconfig)
** error handling: map error messages to numeric codes
** Configuration file for stub domains: Mini-OS, Linux (GPU/NIC PT, CD), rumpkernel
** State management: multiple LibXL clients per host
* CoreOS rkt and Xen
* Toolstack Service VMs
* Xenstore isolation: options between 1/host and 1/VM?
