KVM Enhancements for OPNFV - Jun Nakajima, Intel

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

In this presentation, we introduce and provide an update on the project, and how we plan to work with the upstream KVM project.

We evaluate and compare the options for inter-VM communication (e.g. ivshmem, vhost user, VMFUNC, etc.) in terms of performance, interface/API, usability/programing model, security, and maintenance. 

Finally we provide and update on fast live migration, including improvements with time to co
