Xen Orchestra Community Edition (XOCE)
Requesting adding the Xen Orchestra Community Edition. This is a web-based management console for XCP-NG hypervisor.
Notes: XOCE has high memory requirements (3 GB) and the snap shot, backup and export features can be demanding on system resources. It would not be recommended for use on cloud hosted VPS instances. Also for security reasons, XOCE should only be used locally (self-hosted installs) or over a VPN. Exposing the required communication ports for hypervisor management to the internet is not recommended. It would be beneficial to have remote web access for managing client systems. It would also be beneficial to have the ability to disable on demand access to XOCE from the web as some clients have security restrictions for portions of their business networks.

Use case: I own and operate an IT services business, providing solutions and design consulting for information systems. Our primary focus is small and medium businesses with a few large clients too. We are completing an evaluation Cloudron and other similar solutions. Cloudron is our front runner and choice for sure. Many existing clients have Cloudron or similar solutions installed locally (self-hosted) on a dedicated server or running as a VM. Some clients have a "box farm" and consolidation of physical and\or virtual machine sprawl is a top task for us. Our preferred hypervisor is XCP-ng and we are seeing a lot of businesses move to it or will move to it in the next 18 months.
