Hands-on bhyve, the BSD Hypervisor

Now that bhyve, the BSD Hypervisor has been imported into the FreeBSD 10-CURRENT development mainline, users and developers can easily begin testing this exciting technology that promises to have the same impact on FreeBSD that jails made in 2000. This talk will take you through the history, architecture and features of bhyve and demonstrate its capabilities.

bhyve features that will be demonstrated include:

  • Disk image, zvol and iSCSI guest booting
  • Multiversion FreeBSD guest support
  • High-performance guest execution
