System and User Space Virtualization Support in Yocto: The Yocto Meta-Virtualization Project - Michael Christofferson, Enea

Enea has initiated and is co-maintaining a “Linux meta-virtualization layer” within the Yocto environment consisting of both system and user space virtualization technologies. Specifically the program is: a) to collaboratively research/benchmark system level virtualizationtechnologies such as LxC/KVM/Xen and combined with advanced core isolation techniques for multicore devices, and b)  to integrate and contribute emerging user space virtualization technologies like OpenFlow, OpenvSwitch, LxC, CRIU, dmtcp along with incremental contributions of OpenStack components. Most of these technologies are primarily associated with enterprise/cloud computing for Linux. Yocto is explicitly for embedded Linux distribution support wherein the requirement for system level virtualization in multicore devices is somewhat but yet still not well established. But even more puzzling, why add these user space virtualization technologies to an embedded Linux distribution? This presentation examines emerging market drivers and developments that are blurring the traditional lines between embedded and enterprise/cloud computing. This presentation will show that many next generation of embedded computing solutions will adopt virtualization approaches originally targeted for enterprise/cloud applications. Enter the Yocto Meta-virtualization project.
