The concept of virtualization has been around for a while now and has proved quite resourceful and cost-effective technologies. Operation teams and desktop users alike can spin up multiple virtual machines and run a wide selection of operating systems without the need of installing each on a separate physical server. Virtual machines are created using a hypervisor. Two commonly used Hypervisors are VirtualBox and KVM, both of which are free and opensource.
KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is an open-source and de facto standard virtualization platform that is closely integrated into Linux. It is a run-time kernel module that spins Linux into a type-1 (bare-metal) hypervisor that makes a virtual operating platform, which is used to create and run virtual machines (Vms) in KVM.
Under KVM, each Virtual Machine is a process that is planned and controlled by the kernel and has individual virtualized hardware (i.e CPU, network interface, disk, etc.). It also supports nested virtualization, which enables users to run a VM inside another Virtual Machine.
Some of its key features include support for a wide range of Linux-supported hardware platforms (x86 hardware with virtualization extensions (Intel VT or AMD-V)), it provides enhanced VM security and isolation using both SELinux and secure virtualization (sVirt), it inherits kernel memory management features, and it supports both offline and real-time migration (migration of a running VM between physical hosts).
