Book Description

26 May 2011
In computing, a hypervisor, also called virtual machine manager (VMM), is one of many hardware virtualization techniques that allow multiple operating systems, termed guests, to run concurrently on a host computer. It is so named because it is conceptually one level higher than a supervisory program. The hypervisor presents to the guest operating systems a virtual operating platform and manages the execution of the guest operating systems. Multiple instances of a variety of operating systems may share the virtualized hardware resources. Hypervisors are installed on server hardware whose only task is to run guest operating systems. Non-hypervisor virtualization systems are used for similar tasks on dedicated server hardware, but also commonly on desktop, portable and even handheld computers.

The term is often used to describe the interface provided by the specific cloud computing functionality infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

This book is your ultimate resource for Hypervisor. Here you will find the most up-to-date information, analysis, background and everything you need to know.

In easy to read chapters, with extensive references and links to get you to know all there is to know about Hypervisor right away, covering: Hypervisor, Comparison of application virtual machines, Comparison of platform virtual machines, Comparison of VMware Fusion and Parallels Desktop, Adaptive Domain Environment for Operating Systems, ALGOL 68C, Amazon Machine Image, Application virtualization, ARMware, Byte Code Engineering Library, Bytecode, CherryOS, CHIP-8, Chroot, Computer cluster in virtual machines, Cooperative Linux, Copy-on-write, CP-370, CP-67, CP/CMS, Denali (operating system), Dynamic Logical Partitioning, Workload Partitions, Dynamic recompilation, EasyVZ, Egenera, Embedded hypervisor, Ericom Software, Full system simulator, Full virtualization, HiperSocket, History of CP/CMS, HP Integrity Virtual Machines, Hyper-V, HyperVM, I/O virtualization, IBM CP-40, IBM M44/44X, IBM OLIVER (CICS interactive test/debug), IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale, ICore Virtual Accounts, IEmulator, InstallFree, Kernel-based Virtual Machine, Lanamark, Libquantum, Live migration, LivePC, Logical Domains, Logical partition (virtual computing platform), Mac-on-Linux, Mac-on-Mac, Marionnet, Memory virtualization, Merge (software), Microsoft App-V, Windows Virtual PC, Microsoft Virtual Server, MojoPac, MokaFive, Network virtualization, Novell ZENworks Application VIrtualization, Open Kernel Labs, Open Virtualization Format, Operating system-level virtualization, Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center, Oracle VM, OVPsim, Pano Logic, Parallels Desktop for Mac, Parallels Server for Mac, Parallels Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, Parallels Workstation, Parallels Workstation Extreme, Parallels, Inc., Paravirtualization, Partial virtualization, PearPC, Physical-to-Virtual, PikeOS, PlateSpin, Popek and Goldberg virtualization requirements, PowerVM, PowerVM Lx86, PR/SM, Q (emulator), Quantum virtual machine, QuickTransit, Qumranet, R1soft Hyper-V VHD Explorer, Rawdisk, RingCube vDesk, Sandbox (computer security), Sandbox (software development), Simics, SIMNET, SIMON (Batch Interactive test/debug), Software Virtualization Solution, Solaris Containers, SPECvirt, Storage virtualization, Sun xVM, SVISTA, SWsoft, Sysjail, Systancia, Timeline of virtualization development, Tvpc, TwoOStwo, UC4, Virtual 8086 mode, Virtual appliance, Virtual Application, Virtual backup appliance, Virtual disk image, Virtual DOS machine, Virtual file system, Virtual Iron, Virtual lab automation, Virtual Machine lifecycle management, Virtual Machine Manager, Virtual Processor, Virtual resource partitioning...and much more
