Xen Fault Tolerance – Kemari released

Yoshiaki Tamura released Kemari – an open source Xen Fault Tolerance mechanism – in the version 1.0.

There is a video on the project website showing a fault tolerance Windows XP.

# xm migrate <domid> <destination> --kemari &

For further information please reference the install guide on the project website.
