Xen Logo

Enterprises looking to increase server utilization, consolidate server farms, reduce complexity, and decrease total cost of ownership are embracing server virtualization. The Xen hypervisor is a fast and secure infrastructure virtualization solution available today, supporting a range of guest operating systems including Windows, Linux, Solaris, and various versions of the BSD operating systems. With Xen virtualization, a thin software layer known as the Xen hypervisor is inserted between the server's hardware and the operating system. This aims to provide an abstraction layer that aims to allow each physical server to run one or more "virtual servers," effectively decoupling the operating system and its applications from the underlying physical server. The Xen hypervisor is a open source technology, developed collaboratively by the Xen community and engineers at over 20 of the most data center solution vendors, including AMD, Cisco, Dell, HP, IBM, Intel, Mellanox, Network Appliance, Novell, Red Hat, SGI, Sun, Unisys, Veritas, Voltaire, and Citrix. Xen is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL2) and is available at no charge in both source and object format. Xen is, and always will be, open sourced, uniting the industry and the Xen ecosystem to speed the adoption of virtualization in the enterprise. The Xen hypervisor is also exceptionally lean-- less than 150,000 lines of code. That translates to extremely low overhead and near-native performance for guests. Xen re-uses existing device drivers (both closed and open source) from Linux, making device management easy. Moreover Xen is robust to device driver failure and aims to protect both guests and the hypervisor from faulty or malicious drivers

Other Technology

ThreatGuard Logo

ThreatGuard is an independent technology development company dedicated to producing products that aim to provide an methods available to keep computer networks secure. From the onset ThreatGuard has been a consistent technology leader with innovations such as a -- and still the only -- truly continuous vulnerability management system, a commercial OVAL product, and a Solaris, HP-UX, and Cisco IOS OVAL interpreters. ThreatGuard developed a vulnerability management products to receive OVAL compatibility awards. The company recently released a product in the industry to support automated compliance checklists and remediation using the federal government's Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP).

Citizenre Logo

Citizenre is developing renewable energy infrastructure. Through project development and strategic alliances, Citizenre is aiming to be a photovoltaic manufacturer, a photovoltaic system installer, and an owner/operator of PV generating assets.

PrimeStar Solar

Primestar Solar is a company that received a SBIR Phase I grant for a project entitled: High Quality, Low Cost, Polycrystalline CdS/CdTe Photovoltaic Cells. Their will develop new processes for producing lower cost and higher quality thin films from the compound semiconductors CdS and CdTe. These will be used to more inexpensively produce high performance photovoltaic modules that generate electricity from sunlight. Thin film CdTe-based photovoltaics currently require a post-deposition CdCl2 treatment and anneal to achieve reasonable performance. This anneal is known to increase the grain size in some films and increase the minority carrier lifetime in all CdTe films. The minority carrier lifetime is generally correlated with device efficiency in photovoltaic cells. However, the CdCl2 anneal cannot be optimized to maximize the minority carrier lifetime because attempts to do so have caused film delamination. Film delamination occurs due to strain induced during the anneal at the interface between the film and the glass substrate. This proposal seeks to develop a film deposition process that simultaneously avoids this problem and makes better quality films. This process will foster large grain growth, defect passivation, and grain boundary passivation while eliminating the need for a post-deposition CdCl2 treatment and anneal. This will result in higher efficiency solar cells and a streamlined production process. Commercially, solar photovoltaic modules are a silent, pollution free means to generate electricity from sunlight. Once the capital investment is made to install a photovoltaic electricity system, its operating cost is essentially zero because its "fuel", sunlight, is free. Photovoltaic electricity provides a means for homes to generate as much energy as they use over the course of a year. The production of photovoltaic modules has been increasing 20-30% annually for the past decade due to increases in efficiency and reductions in cost. However, for photovoltaics to achieve significant market penetration into mainstream electricity generation, this growth rate must be continued. This requires further increases in module efficiency and reductions in module cost. This research proposal addresses both of these issues. Successful development of this technology will ensure the marketplace success of CdTe photovoltaic modules, and pave the way for widespread stable-priced, sustainable, pollution-free electricity generation.
