XCP-NG

XCP-NG is a type 1 hypervisor (bare-metal hypervisor) based on the Xen-Hypervisor.

XCP-NG is subject to the same restrictions as the Xen hypervisor, which limits the possible executable operating systems. The latest version 8.2 supports the following guest operating systems:

Windows-based

  • Windows Server 2012, 2016, 2019, 2022
  • Windows 10
  • Older Windows versions are emulated (slower)

Linux-based

  • RHEL/CentOS from 7, Rocky, Alma, Oracle…
  • All Debian/Ubuntu based
  • Arch, Alpine, SUSE and many more

BSD-based

  • FreeBSD and related systems (pfSense, TrueNAS…)
  • OpenBSD

Virtualization – Basics

Virtualization means running several sub-operating systems simultaneously on a single hardware and a main operating system.

The main operating system is called the host (main computer). All other sub-operating systems are called Guest.

The aim is to be able to make optimum use of ever faster and more powerful hardware, thus saving hardware costs, energy costs, space and peripheral costs without compromising secure and active operation.

Several systems are available for virtualization. This article describes the open source systems that are already so mature that they represent serious competition to the established top dogs.
