KVM on POWER

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This talk is about virtualization with KVM and QEMU on the powerpc platform, especially with regard to the new POWER8 systems. After a short introduction to the Power platform in general, the differences to KVM on the x86 platform will be explained, like the devices that are special to the PPC sPAPR platform and the different kind of KVM kernel modules. To give some help with troubleshooting a non-working guest partition, we'll also have a look the user-related concepts of the guest boot firmware ("Open Firmware" as it is called in the powerpc world).

I'm working for Red Hat in the virtualization team, where my colleagues and I take care of KVM and QEMU on the POWER8 platform. In my past job, I also did KVM/QEMU development on System z (s390x) and was involved in developing firmware implementations for various powerpc based systems.
