Virtualization support for Power architecture

2012-10-29 16:15..17:00 in B3-M3

Currently, virtualization infrastructure from qemu to openstack, does not fully comprehend architectures that are non-x86. While qemu has finally been built on powerpc in precise to enable a KVM enabled VM, things like libvirt and openstack do not entirely know about the existence and difference for non-x86 hosts and VMs. Enablement is needed so that these differences are apparent and so that jobs/VMs can be created as "generic" or specific to a certain architecture.

== Comment == Hi Ben, Currently the session shortname (virt-powerpc) doesn't fit the convention for the tracks. Would you be able to determine where you think this best fits? -- Daviey
