Running Enterprise Suse Desktop on XEN 3.0???

Has anyone tried to run massive amounts of the enterpise suse desktop
software on XEN 3.0? I have multiple servers (data center servers) and I
wanted to try running about 400-500 desktop's on a server farm using XEN
3.0 with the Wyse thin-client boxes.

Again, I have about 7 Data center servers (latest Xenon Proc with 16GB
memory on each server) and I was just wondering if anyone has tried this
with SuSE yet?

Thanks!

Re: Running Enterprise Suse Desktop on XEN 3.0???

Are you saying you are considering 400-500 SLED 10 Xen domains or are you
considering 400-500 sessions spread across a much smaller number of SLED
10 Xen domains?

I have only used Xen to virtualize a number of servers
and VNC spawns new sessions as more admins connect to the same machine.
The overhead of running a bunch of paravirtualized servers on the
same box is working well for us but we don't have multitudes of X11
running which would be required in your scenario. Hundreds of Xen
machines even in a para-virtualized environment sounds a bit resource
intensive compared to hundreds of connections to only a few Xen
installations but perhaps there are configurations where that would not be
the case.

Looking forward to hearing how other people handle SLED 10 terminals.
