The Linux foundation will be hosting the Cloud Hypervisor Project. This project has some major backers and it will be interesting to see where this goes.
The backers of this new platform include Alibaba, ARM, Intel, and Microsoft. According to Arjan van de Ven, Fellow at Intel, “Cloud Hypervisor has grown to the point of moving to the neutral governance of The Linux Foundation.” He continues, “We created the project to provide a more secure and updated VMM to optimize for modern cloud workloads. With fewer device models and a modern, more secure language, Cloud Hypervisor offers security and performance-optimized for today’s cloud needs.”
