Making Nested Virtualization Real by Using Hardware Virtualization Features - Jun Nakajima, Intel

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

Nested Virtualization was once considered as a research project, but we are seeing real demands for it, even in the cloud. Without nested virtualization, hardware virtualization is not enabled in the cloud. As Linux is required to run in virtualization as the default deployment for IT and the cloud, the virtualization feature such as KVM or Xen is required to be available and optimized in guests as well. For example, the Android emulator wouldn’t provide practical performance on a Linux VM without nested virtualization. In this talk, we discuss use cases, characteristics of nested virtualization, and optimizations using new hardware virtualization features, such as
"€œVMCS shadowing"€.

The expected audience is developers interested in new technologies for virtualization and the cloud. They will learn about use cases, latest status, and how nested virtualization is becoming real.
