More and more workloads are now moving to a new platform -- the cloud -- but they are doing so while using operating systems designed for physical deployments. OSv is a from-scratch take at creating an operating system specifically for virtualized workloads -- so much so that it cannot run on physical hardware. We will present OSv, its unique characteristics, and how it can help you run your cloud workloads. OSv is an open source project distributed under a BSD style license.
The audience is anyone with a general interest in operating systems, as well as dev/ops people who are interested in improving the efficiency of managing and running their cloud workloads.
This presentation introduces a new and fairly disrupting project, which is what the ecosystem thrives on. We can't keep on doing the same things forever!
