I'm using it on some important servers (isolation and easy of
backup/recovery), but I'm not 100% happy with that. As mentioned before,
there are still some unresolved bugs. Recently I did standard virt-install
deployment using files as a storage, and performance is terrible (even for
not very busy servers). If you need to use it, I would recommend not to use
virt-install, and use separate lvolumes as storage backend.
I also have impression that networking performance is degraded in comparison
to vanilla Xen deployments.

With my recent experiences I would wait for update or use vanilla Xen.
