XCP: support vhdx format for VDI
Microsoft has released the open specification of vhdx format with these improvements....this could greatly help in VM performance improvements:
Support up to 16TB size
Support larger block file size
improved corruption resistance
Planned eventually; no target release yet.

I talked with the storage team, and they do plan on eventually switching to this format. But we don't have any timeline for that yet. The greater than 2TB disk size is a nice feature to have.

XCP is preferred
maruti, are you asking for support from open-source Xen, or from XCP / XenServer?
