Virtualization isn't only used to consolidate legacy hardware anymore; it runs the world's largest shared compute infrastructures. What if we reinvent the hypervisor for the cloud? Strong isolation, performance, and spin-up time matter -- not compatibility.

Over recent years, organizations have dramatically changed how they deploy and manage services, with Linux and virtualization at the center of the shift (AWS, OpenStack, etc.). Despite this, many developers and operators have minimal insight into how a hypervisor works or innovation possible at the bottom of the software stack.

The audience can expect a brief overview of virtualization fundamentals, followed by technical details of novm and specific insights gained during development, some straight-forward and others advanced. I hope that most developers will come away with new knowledge and curiosity, while advanced developers may be interested in some of the specific design decisions or roadblocks encountered.
