KVM Virtualization enhancements in Linux Kernel 2.6.21



Kernel maintainer Andrew Morton, revealed some plans for the new kernel. I kind of look back and smile back at the Gartner's prediction of Linux will get to be the hero in 2007. Then it struck me! Would Virtualization make Linux the hero? Did Microsoft saw that in Linux and made a quick move to embrace Novell? Questions, Questions.

When I look at that Virtualization Manager tool in Fedora Core 6, it is a sign. We could very well have users getting everything out of Linux and Xen in the coming years. You just don't know.

In a message to the kernel developers mailing list, Morton gave an indication of some of the major new components that will go into 2.6.21. One change will be improvements to the KVM virtualization system, which made its debut in 2.6.20 along with an implementation of paravirtualization.
