Future Innovations in Virtualization Technology

Scott Devine

Virtualization has become a mainstream technology for commodity x86 systems, but in the coming years, we will continue to see rapid innovation in this technology area. These innovations will encompass many areas, including hardware assist, I/O virtualization, virtualization-aware software, additional services and solutions in the virtualization infrastructure. This talk will provide a glimpse into some of these innovations and also highlight some of the open technical challenges and opportunities that remain.
