FOSDEM 2016 Talk: Live Migration of Virtual Machines From The Bottom Up

I just did a talk titled ‘Live Migration of Virtual Machines From The Bottom Up‘ at the FOSDEM conference in Brussels, Belgium.  The slides are available at this location.

The talk introduced the KVM stack (Linux, KVM, QEMU, libvirt) and live migration; introduced ways the higher layers (especially oVirt and OpenStack) use KVM and migration, and what challenges the KVM team faces in working with varying use-cases and new features added to make migration work, and work faster.

There was a video recording, I will post the link to it in a separate post.

Update: video recording available at this location.

Interviews On My FOSDEM 2016 Talk

I was interviewed by the FOSDEM folks on my upcoming talk on KVM Live Migration.

I was also interviewed by Brian Proffitt, who has written an article that serves as a preview for the talk.

Looking forward to the talk this Sunday!

SCaLE14x Talk: KVM Weather Report

I did a talk titled ‘KVM Weather Report‘ at the SCaLE conference in Pasadena, California yesterday.  The slides are available at this location.

The talk introduced the KVM stack (Linux, KVM, QEMU, libvirt); briefly went over some features and the communities around the projects, and discussed some of the new features added to the KVM stack in the last year.

Next up is my talk on live migration of VMs at FOSDEM in Belgium.

QEMU Maintainer Interviews for the 2.5 release

Hot on the heels of the QEMU 2.4 release, we have QEMU version 2.5 releasing today.

QEMU creates the virtual machine which guest operating systems run on top off.  QEMU also handles host-specific things, like the storage and networking on the host.

Given the wide scope of this project, there are several changes that many contributors add to each release.  To repeat the success with the 2.4 release video, I asked maintainers to record segments for the 2.5 release as well.  A few maintainers and contributors chipped in with videos, and a few updated the ChangeLog page, and added new feature pages.  Thanks to all who pitched in!
