KVM, libvirt and QEMU virtualization

Virtualization systems allows your computer to run more than one operating system at the same time. KVM is a Hypervisor -- the main part of a virtualization system -- included in the Linux Kernel. Chris Irwin will show us what virtualization is, as well as how and why to use KVM, QEMU, and libvirt on Linux.

This presentation is suitable for those new to virtualization and curious about it as well as those with moderate virtualization experience.
