Using KVM to Run Xen Guests Without Xen

Ryan A Harper (ryanh@us.ibm.com)

We will present current work toward running a XenoLinux guest on top of Linux
using KVM.  The presentation will cover the significant differences between
Xen and Linux acting as hypervisors, how the kvm-xen module works, the
challenges faced during the implementation, and a performance evaluation of
the work.

Attendees can expect to learn about x86 paravirtualization, full-virtualization,
key differences between KVM and Xen, and various performance metrics of
the two hypervisors.
