Virtualization

EuroBSDCon DevSummit Day 2

Day 2 of EuroBSDCon (overview of Day 1) kicked off for me with the morning being dedicated to virtualization. In Linux we’re all used to the usual suspects - KVM/Xen/LXC/VMWare, so I was interested to hear what’s available on FreeBSD especially bhyve which is probably as close to KVM as one will get. Xen support is available in FreeBSD, but only as DomU (guest VM). Dom0 (host server) support is actively being worked on though to rectify this shortfall (this does not apply to NetBSD).
