CIVIC: A Hypervisor Based Virtual Computing Environment
Source: Springer Science+Business Media
The purpose of virtual computing environment is to improve resource utilization by providing a unified integrated operating platform for users and applications based on aggregation of heterogeneous and autonomous resources. With the rapid development in recent years, hypervisor technologies have become mature and comprehensive with four features, including transparency, isolation, encapsulation and manageability. In this paper, a hypervisor based virtual computing infrastructure, named CIVIC, is proposed. Compared with existing approaches, CIVIC may benefit in several ways. It offers separated and isolated computing environment for end users, and realizes hardware and software consolidation and centralized management.
