KVM ( Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a virtualization solution for Linux. It consists of a loadable kernel module, kvm.ko, that provides the core virtualization infrastructure and a processor specific module. Using KVM, we can run multiple virtual machines having Linux or Windows images.
KVM uses QEMU("Quick EMUlator") which is a free and open-source software that performs hardware virtualization. Virtio is a virtualization standard for network and disk device drivers where just the guest's device driver "knows" it is running in a virtual environment, and cooperates with the hypervisor. This session would be useful for those who want to understand virtualization with KVM and interested to know about how KVM, QEMU & Virtio works together.
The session will also cover few of the details about the work flow of virtio and QEMU."
