This year’s Xen Directions conference is being held in Berlin, Germany on Saturday June 27, 2009 at the LinuxTag event being held there. The focus of the event is little different than that of the Xen Summit conferences, in that the Xen Directions events are the technical marketing, outward facing events for the Xen.org community, which are held globally throughout the year. The Xen Summit conferences are the technical developer focused community gatherings to discuss the latest technology updates, roadmap, and new features.

The event showcases leading members of the community from Citrix, Oracle, HP, AMD, and others presenting their virtualization solutions based on open source Xen. Below is the current agenda for the event:
