KVM now supports real-time. This allows for virtualizing workloads with low and deterministic latency requirements. KVM real-time is one of the building blocks needed by NFV (Network Function Virtualization).
This talk will introduce the real-time topic to the public, walk through the kernel and KVM improvements we did upstream and discuss real-time KVM host and guest configuration.
I'm a Senior Software Engineer at Red Hat. In the last few years, I've been doing kernel side work on debugging hard issues and implementing small features. In a more distant past, I used to be a QEMU subsystem maintainer.
