KVM is a popular open source hypervisor. Virtualization is made available through a kernel module. KVM is a hardware-assisted full virtualization solution. It provides virtualization with QEMU, a loadable kernel module and Linux.
Beginning with Oracle Linux Release 7 with the unbreakable enterprise kernel (UEK) release 5, Oracle Linux KVM, the Oracle Linux server virtualization solution with KVM, has been enhanced. Users can configure KVM from a base Oracle Linux installation.
