Out of date[edit]

The article should be updated to reflect that the last bits of anything named "xVM" are gone.

VirtualBox and Ops Center live on, but lost xVM branding (and Sun branding) a while ago; the separate xVM Server project essentially went away before Sun was acquired by Oracle:

This is what the current last paragraph of the article is alluding to when it says "the Xen Community announced" -- it was really Steve Wilson's announcement, which parses out to no longer planning for a separate Solaris-based "xVM Server" appliance product, and rolling xVM Server's management function into Ops Center.

And, the xVM hypervisor has been removed from the Oracle Solaris 11 kernel:

xVM hypervisor, the Solaris x86 Xen based hypervisor has been removed. Users who want to use an x86 based hypervisor solution can look at Oracle VM Server for x86 or Oracle VM Virtualbox.
