Linux kernel version 2.6.20, released on Sunday, offers access to a new framework meant to provide a user-friendly, high performance platform for Linux virtualization in the future. The framework, called Kernel-based Virtual Machine, or KVM, is a full virtualization technology for Linux on x86 hardware. It consists of a loadable kernel module named kvm.ko and a userspace component. Both components are open source software.
