Virtualization is a hot topic these days, but practical examples are hard to find. This talk will present how we used Xen and Crucible to turn a single machine into a multi-node test harness for Inkscape and Cairo. We'll present a few Xen-specific issues (and benefits) we found and describe how this Crucible+Xen system could be leveraged by other FLOSS projects or expanded into a larger test environment.
