kvm: The Kernel-Based Virtual Machine for Linux

Avi Kivity (avi@qumranet.com)

Virtualization has proven to be a useful technique for consolidating workloads from multiple machines onto a single server, for R&D and testing, and to allow the home user to experiment with the myriads of Linux distros out there. With the inclusion of kvm, the kernel-based virtual machine, Linux has gained native support for full virtualization capabilities

We discuss the design aspects, performance, and future directions, and conclude with a short demonstration. You should attend if you are interested in virtualization. Understanding Linux kernel internals is helpful though not mandatory.
