Introducing OSv: A New Open Source Operating System Designed for the Cloud - Avi Kivity & Dor Laor Cloudius

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

A lot of the cloud discussion centers around which are the best hypervisors, and which management tools will simplify one's life the most. But is it the whole story? While addressing the problems from the lower and higher layers, the middle man -- the guest operating system -- is usually left behind. 

In this talk will introduce OSv, a new, from-scratch operating system designed specifically for cloud deployments. We will showcase the operating system architecture and explain the performance and manageability improvements that can be expected.

Operating system developers, as well as application developers who deploy to the cloud may enjoy the talk. No special expertise is required.
