Hi all...

I'm a Xen newbie and was wondering about the merits of using Xen to segment off my private data from the prying eyes & fingers of Apache/ PHP hackers (something that bit me recently). If I create several DOM's -- one for Apache, 1 for mail, 1 for pgsql and 1 for my private data, is that a good way to ensure that IF someone gets around Apache ( for instance) that my private data will not be compromised? The server I've got is a quad Xeon Proliant running FC6
