System and User Space Virtualization Support in Yocto – the Yocto Meta-Virtualization Project
Enea has initiated and is co-maintaining a “Linux meta-virtualization layer” within the Yocto environment consisting of both system and user space virtualization technologies. Specifically the program is: a) to collaboratively research/benchmark LxC/KVM/Xen virtualization combined with advanced core isolation techniques, and additionally b) to integrate and contribute OpenFlow, OpenvSwitch, LxC, CRIU, dmtcp along with incremental contributions of OpenStack components. This webinar examines some market drivers for the above mentioned virtualization technologies and provides an overview of this exciting new Yocto project.
What you will learn
· What is Meta-Virtualization? What open source technologies are involved?
· What are the industry drivers for advanced virtualization technologies
· Status of the Yocto Meta-Virtualization Project
