The Xen Cloud Platform (XCP) is an open source enterprise-ready server
virtualization and cloud computing platform, delivering the Xen Hypervisor
with support for a range of guest operating systems. This package is part
of it. It implements the userland part of the blktap driver.
Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) is a file format standard which maps logical hard disk
contents to a physical disk image format, which can then be more efficiently
stored in a variety of different storage types, such as file systems or
logical volumes.
VHDs are container files storing block metadata alongside a virtual disk's
contents, in a single disk image. The metadata enables advanced storage
backend capabilities, such as thin provisioning, disk image snapshotting, and
coalescing of differencing disks.
Libvhd is a library to access VHD format metadata. It provides disk image
initialization, inspection and manipulation to both VHD user utilities and
the VHD disk driver in Blktap.
This package contains the runtime vhd library.
