From the perspective of long-term preservation, we believe it's
important to build our system entirely from open-source software. There
is no guarantee that XenClient will be available even five years from
now, or that it will continue to supply the required functionality at an
acceptable price. The KVM/qemu/libvirt virtualization stack is
developed by a diverse community, is controlled by no single entity, and
can be modified or extended if necessary to better support our requirements.
