Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) is an open-source, full virtualization solution built into the Linux kernel, enabling the creation and management of virtual machines on Linux hosts. KVM is widely recognized for its performance, scalability, and security, making it an ideal choice for cloud environments and data centers of all sizes. Its strong integration with the Linux ecosystem and support for advanced features such as live migration and memory overcommitment have made KVM a popular choice among organizations seeking a robust and efficient virtualization solution.
KVM is supported by Apache CloudStack, allowing administrators to fully utilize KVM’s virtualization capabilities within their CloudStack deployments. The integration enables a seamless management experience for KVM environments, with CloudStack providing an abstraction layer that simplifies the orchestration of resources and virtual machines alongside other hypervisors.
