KVM Ubuntu Developer Week Session

My apologies for not announcing this in advance, but I just today gave a 1-hour session on KVM in #ubuntu-classroom in IRC for the Ubuntu Developer Week.

You can read the log here.

From this session, you should learn:
  • a bit about what KVM is, how it works, what you need to have to be able to use it
  • launching of a basic virtual machine (using testdrive)
  • dissection of the most useful KVM command line parameters
  • creating a backing disk image (even arbitrarily large, like 1 Petabyte!)
  • live migration of a VM
