While this investment won't directly benefits to Xen Orchestra itself, the work we will achieve in XCP-ng platform to improve security and performances might open interesting tracks for Xen Orchestra to explore as well as better performances in XCP-ng means better performances in Xen Orchestra. This is a good news for XOA too.
