Kata Containers is an open source project that brings the security of hardware virtualization to containers through lightweight VMs. In its effort to look and feel like a container, Kata leverages many of the features in KVM/QEMU which are typically not needed for a cloud virtual machine.

How many developers use VFIO? How many use VFIO-hotplug? And DAX and nvdimm and CPU hotplug?

This session details how Kata Containers use features of KVM/QEMU and some of the problem areas we encountered along the way. Finally, we discuss areas in the hypervisor we’re looking to focus on going forward.
