VHD file format access library

The Xen Cloud Platform (XCP) is a free software 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.
