Improve your VM’ performance by leveraging common hardware
virtualization extensions and native Linux kernel modules. The
combination of Quick Emulator and Kernel-based Virtual Machines offers
a free, open source, highly-configurable, and scalable platform to
deploy systems ranging from small personal file servers to enterprise
grade compute clusters.

We’ll explore general deployment of VMs within QEMU/KVM, as well as
exploiting hardware acceleration via PCIe device passthrough to reach
virtualized, bare-metal performance
