The cloud-based VMM is the latest in open source software, and the Linux Foundation has taken it up for hosting.

Cloud Hypervisor is the latest open-source software released for organizations looking to improve their cloud computing and storage practices. The Linux Foundation is hosting this software.

The process of hypervisor is to create virtual machines. And the software has introduced the ability to create cloud-based virtual machines. Moreover, the software is run on the Rust programming language, and the provided security is beyond impressive.

Features offered by Cloud Hypervisor

The one thing that’s sets cloud hypervisor apart from other VM software is its modular ability. It features a central processing unit and device and memory hot plugging. This means that the components can be swapped out without disrupting the entire system.

It also offers support for Linux and Windows guests, device offloads, and comes with a compact footprint. So the software can be run without depending on a lot of computing resources.

The modular design allows users only to use the modules they need without sacrificing the originality of the remaining infrastructure.

The software was designed to be used as a complementary solution for larger systems. This aims to develop lightweight and high-performing VMM for modern cloud operations.

Data security is also a huge concern when it comes to cloud computing, and Linux acknowledges this risk. This is why the software will work towards boosting security in cloud computing workflows.

This project is still in its early stages, and on paper, it seems to be the perfect software for virtual cloud-based machines. It is simplifying workloads, improving security, all while leaving a compact footprint. Time will tell if this solution runs into any difficulties or issues.
