LXDoNe – Lightweight Virtualization for OpenNebula

Operating system (OS) level virtualization is a technology that has recently emerged into the cloud services paradigm. It has the advantage of providing better performance, elasticity and scalability than para-virtualization or full virtualization. This happens because HVM hypervisors need to emulate hardware and use a new kernel for each virtual machine that will be deployed. […]

LXC Containers for OpenNebula

Operating-system-level virtualization, a new technology that has recently emerged and is being accepted into cloud infrastructures, has the advantage of providing better performance and scalability than other virtualization technologies such as Hardware-Assisted Virtual Machine (HVM). LinuX Containers (LXC) allow the usage of this technology by creating containers that resemble complete isolated Linux virtual machines on […]
