[edit] Virtualization

Date: October 12, 2010, at 4:00 PM
Presenters: Geoffrey Thomas
Location: 4-231
Notes: slides
Abstract: Virtualization has long had a key role in computing, from IBM's mainframe OSes in the 1970s to the new field of "cloud computing". We'll look at the technical history of virtualization and what exactly the term means, from the Popek and Goldberg paper to paravirtualization to the latest Intel and AMD processor extensions. We will also discuss several popular virtualization platforms and what you can do with them.
