LinuxCon Japan is the premiere Linux conference in Asia that brings together a unique blend of core developers, administrators, users, community managers and industry experts.
CloudOpen Japan is a conference celebrating and exploring the open source projects, technologies and companies who make up the cloud. It’s built on a belief that open works: for users, for industry and for technology.
Since last year we have introduced many new features. The biggest one is dropping the Big Libvirt Lock which speeds up domain starting by 200%. Then, we have introduced support for external disk snapshots and block jobs for better control of restoring points. In area of disk locking, our own implementation has been released so users are not locked down with just sanlock. Support for yet another hypervisor has been added. This time it's Parallels Cloud Server. Speaking of drivers, ESX driver has been completely rewritten and gained new functionality. Since last year, we have taught libvirt to utilize qemu guest agent so now it's possible to run some operations from inside the guest. And many other important features that will be more detailed in the talk.
The talk is aimed mostly at developers, especially those working in virtualization.
