Collaboration Summit 2013 - Enhancing Hypervisor and Cloud Solutions Using Embedded Linux
The Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit 2013 San Francisco, California Enhancing Hypervisor and Cloud Solutions Using Embedded Linux By Iisko Lappalainen This presentation will discuss the usage of Linux as a base component of a hypervisor solution particularily in the context of creating a base for a cloud hosting framework. The basis for the discussion is formed by combining technologies like KVM/QEMU, OpenVSwitch, OpenFlow and OpenStack to form a technical base for the solution, and digging into particular detailed problem areas to see where the experience from the embedded world can help in creating a more competent experience. We will dig into real-world use-cases and problems and their solutions in the virtualization domain. The talk is meant for a technical audience while maintaining big picture view of the solution. We will review details of particular enhancements but will also cover the total architecture of the system. The target audience is engineers and architects as well as people in system management roles.
