Xen is a virtual machine application that allows users to run multiple operating systems concurrently on the same physical box. Each OS gets its resource and partition allocation from Xen, which claims to have a low overhead by virtue of its "para-virtualization" technique.

Novell would be a contributor to the Xen project. IBM Corp has been quietly contributing to Xen, and Hewlett-Packard Co announced at LinuxWorld earlier in the week that its HP Labs would also be contributing the to project.
Novell announced plans to integrate Xen packages into its forthcoming SUSE Professional 9.3 update and its next commercially supported version of SUSE Enterprise Linux Server Version 10, tentatively due in 2006
