XCP-ng, the effort to revive an open source version of XenServer, will go ahead after crushing its crowdfunding campaign. The project’s Kickstarter sought €6,000 but ended up with €38,531 from crowdfunding contributors. Project founder Olivier Lambert wrote to backers with news that their donations, plus more money from as-yet-un-named sponsors, brought the total fundraising effort to “around 50k€+”.

The folk behind the project said that’s enough to help them create a first release by March 31st, then figure out “how to update XCP-ng (should be straightforward) but also how to upgrade it.” Also on the team’s to-do list is making it possible to upgrade a XenServer machine to XCP-ng. “Finally, a clean workflow of building XCP-ng will lead to new possibilities, like adding extra stuff in it, without breaking anything.”
