KVM - Is it the actual hypervisor?
I was reading an article about KVM. It said that Qemu could be ran without KVM enabled in the Kernel. The article also states:
hypervisor serves as an interface between the guest
operating system and the host. The hypervisor
sits on top of the host system, handling tasks such as scheduling and memory management for the guests. "
So if the Qemu can be ran without the KVM, what exactly is the KVM in the kernel? Is it the actual hypervisor?
