Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) was developed in Linux as a
very speedy in-kernel virtualization solution that takes advantage
of Intel's VT and AMD's V technology. Recently, it was ported to
Open Solaris derived operating systems such as Joyent's SmartOS and
Open Indiana. Currently, libvirt is not supported so creating a
virtual machine is a bit of a manual process.
In this post, I will describe my process for creating KVM based
virtual machines on my Open Indiana 151a server. I will describe
how to install a Debian Linux system.
