KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions (Intel VT or AMD-V). It consists of a loadable kernel module, kvm.ko, that provides the core virtualization infrastructure and a processor specific module, kvm-intel.ko or kvm-amd.k. I will invite to talk about kvm and their uses in Desktop/Server enviroments in order to create a Labs enviroment for Student and more examples for use it on a server enviroments.
