Virtualization Architect
Liran Alon is the Virtualization Architect of OCI Israel (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure).

He is involved and lead projects in multiple areas of the company's public cloud offering such as Compute, Networking and Virtualization.
In addition, Liran is a very active KVM contributor (mostly, but not limited to, nVMX).

He has been involved in the past few years in advancing state-of-the-art of KVM nested-virtualization and the adjustment of QEMU/SeaBIOS/OVMF to support VMs from other hypervisors. In addition he worked on, and lead, the development of Oracle Ravello's propriety binary-translation hypervisor, which is optimized to run as a nested-hypervisor (on top of the public cloud) and able to expose AMD SVM with NPT (on CPU with no HW virt-extensions), and many more virtualization challenges.

Previous to his work at Oracle, Liran has worked for over 6 years as Security Researcher & Developer for Israel PMO & IDF. There he has gained vast experience on OS Internals (Windows & Linux), kernel development, x86 architecture,
reverse-engineering, vulnerabilities, exploits, exploit mitigations and security-products internals.

Liran has a B.Sc. in Computer Science From Tel-Aviv University. In addition, he regularly lectures on various OS Internals courses.
