VIRTIO 1.0: Paravirtualized I/O devices for KVM and beyond

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

Virtio devices provide high-performance, paravirtualized I/O to virtualmachines under KVM and other hypervisors. Virtio offers an extensible and openalternative to emulating proprietary hardware. Virtio is also finding useoutside its traditional virtualization role as a way to provide device accesson new hardware architectures.This talk covers the VIRTIO 1.0 specification which is currently undergoing thestandardization process. It offers new performance improvements, integratesadditional hardware transports, and eliminates earlier design mistakes.The talk gives an overview of the virtio device model and design decisions inthe upcoming VIRTIO 1.0 specification. Developers and anyone interested invirtualization will gain an appreciation for how data is transported fromvirtual machines to physical disks or network adapters.
