Friendly coexistence of Virtual Machines and Containers on Kubernetes using KubeVirt

KubeVirt is intended to provide a convergence point for the data center of the future using Kubernetes as an infrastructure fabric for both application container and virtual machine workloads. Using a unified management approach simplifies deployments, allows for better resource utilization, and supports different workloads in a more optimal way.

This session will outline how the Kubevirt project seeks to achieve this while using the extensible nature of Kubernetes in a way that provides a developer workflow that is as consistent as possible with the same patterns used for working with application containers.

Finally attendees will see a brief demo of how KubeVirt works today, before a discussion of where we want to go next!


What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will learn what KubeVirt is, the use cases it is aimed at, how it adds support for virtual machine workloads to Kubernetes clusters, and a brief comparison to other approaches taken by different projects like Katacontainers.
