XenServer 6.2 release is available under the GNU GPL v2 open source license. 

What about the difference in functions?

I am using Xenserver and Xenclient to host and access virtual machines. The Olive project create your VMNetX client and server to host and access VMs. Do you mind tell me the advantage of using your approach as compare to mine? 

Thanks, 

Peter

Hi Peter, 

>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.
