Check out the libvirt based tools, virt-clone can copy them without issue and if you need to code something there are libvirt code for a lot of languages. I use the perl bindings for an inhouse project and they are quite solid.

does libvirt support Xen, please suggest any tools that you are aware of – John-ZFS Dec 4 '11 at 16:02
yes libvirt supports Xen, KVM, VMWare and Virtualbox - its pretty powerful. Libvirt's frequently used tools are: virt-clone, virsh, virt-install, and virt-manage which is a GUI that allows you to do all of this. – n8whnp Dec 5 '11 at 0:27
thanks, correction virt-manager is the GUI not virt-manage – John-ZFS Dec 5 '11 at 2:04
thanks for the correction you are right ... – n8whnp Dec 5 '11 at 2:22
