    Containers Checkpointing and Live Migration

    Container-type virtualization is an ability to run multiple isolated sets of processes, known as containers, under a single kernel instance. Having such an isolation opens the possibility to save the complete state of (in other words, to checkpoint) a container and later to restart it. Checkpointing itself is used for...

    Unifying Virtual Drivers

    Para-virtualization presents a wide variety of issues to Operating Systems. One of these is presenting virtual devices to the para-virtualized operating system, as well as the device drivers which handle these devices. With the increase of virtualization in the Linux kernel, there has been an influx of unique drivers to...

    Cooperative Linux

    In this paper, the author will describe Cooperative Linux, a port of the Linux kernel that allows it to run as an unprivileged lightweight virtual machine in kernel mode, on top of another OS kernel. It allows Linux to run under any operating system that supports loading drivers, such as...

    Where Linux Kernel Documentation Hides

    In 2007 the Linux Foundation awarded me a fellowship to deal with the ongoing lack of good Linux kernel documentation. Unfortunately, a good problem statement isn't necessarily a good plan of attack. The author spent most of the next seven months just trying to figure out what "Fixing it" actually...
