Thread-topic: Memory limit

I am evaluating XEN to see if we might be able to use it in place of Vmware ESX for our Linux guests.  (Obviously will not work for our Windows servers….)


I booted the demo CD under Vmware ESX and it worked fine.  Xen guests under Vmware….


From the specs, I see there is a 4GB limit.  Is that limit per domain, for all guests, or for the entire server?  Right now our vmware servers are dual CPU Xeons with 12-16GB of ram each, running about 15 guests.


Is there an estimate when the 64 bit version will be released, and if it will support a mix of 32 and 64 bit, or will it all have to be 64 bit?  (I don’t have any 64-bit hardware yet, but…)
