KVM, OpenStack, and the Open Cloud
KVM is the primary hypervisor used in OpenStack deployments, combining two major open source projects to deliver open cloud computing. Expanding beyond its x86 roots, KVM is now available for Power Systems and is being ported to additional architectures. This presentation will review the architecture of both KVM and OpenStack, highlight the potential synergies and benefits, and discuss production OpenStack cloud deployments which use KVM. It will also look forward to future developments in KVM, OpenStack and their ecosystems and how these will influence open cloud computing.
