Cloud Operating Systems for servers are optimized to deploy and run back-end infrastructure and middleware as efficiently as possible. Typically a Cloud OS will include just enough functionality in the host to run workloads in a Linux container or a KVM Virtual Machine.
Mike will discuss what makes a good Cloud Server OS and why Linux is providing the leading implementations, and is clearly providing innovation to the industry. He will also cover the two primary methods used by Cloud operating systems to reduce overhead: sharing a kernel using Linux Containers, or running on a bare-bones kernel such as OSv. (http://osv.io)
Mike will provide performance data for a range of “cloud operations” including deployment of workloads, performance measured by cpu, network, disk, and generally; using Docker with CoreOS and Atom, and OSv with KVM.Survey this Session
