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!
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.
