Light Weight Virtualization with QEMU/KVM - Chao Peng, Intel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Comparing to traditional full-blown VM based virtualization,light weight virtualization like Linux container boots much faster and runs more efficiently.But it also has drawback:the software-level isolation makes it not as secure as traditional hardware-enforced hypervisor.In this talk Anthony/Chao will share their work on tailoring and improving the traditional hypervisor to run a light weight VM, to gain both performance and scalability, while at the same time maintaining hardware-based isolation. Specifically, you will see how the open-source and industry-proven QEMU/KVM can be optimized to achieve near native container performance/scalability (e.g. fast boot and small memory footprint). Firstly,you will see how QEMU boot time can be shortened from ~300ms to ~50ms. Secondly, you will also see how these improvements be used in the related projects like Intel Clear Container and Docker.


Chao Peng

Sr. Software Engineer, Intel
Chao is a senior software engineer from Intel and his job content includes hardware virtualization feature enabling for open source hypervisors like KVM/Xen, as well as the performance tuning for virtualization and cloud products. Recently he focuses on light-weight virtualization solutions like Linux container and try to improve the security of container using hardware isolation technologies.
