KVM & RedHat

by Abdur-Rahmaan Janhangeer

KVM or Kernel-based Virtual Machine has been integrated into the Linux kernel since 2007. It allows the kernel to be used as a hypervisor, allowing instructions to be run at the hardware level.

It’s very comprehensible for such a piece to be integrated early in the Linux kernel. I just wasn’t aware of the term.

I was perplexed by why Redhat pages kept appearing when looking for KVM. KVM was developed by Qumranet, an Israeli-based company that was acquired by … RedHat in 2008. Very comprehensible.

It’s great to see RedHat’s vision from early on. Since RedHat offers OpenSource solutions, it secures it’s expertise over it.
