DVM: Towards a Datacenter-Scale Virtual Machine

As cloud-based computation becomes increasingly important, providing a general computational interface to support datacenter-scale programming has become an imperative research agenda. Many cloud systems use existing Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM) technologies, such as Xen, VMware, and Windows Hypervisor, to multiplex a physical host into multiple virtual hosts and isolate computation on the shared cluster platform. However, traditional multiplexing VMMs do not scale beyond one single physical host, and it alone cannot provide the programming interface and cluster-wide computation that a datacenter system requires.
