A Lightweight Virtual Machine Monitor for HPC Systems

Patrick Bridges, University of New Mexico, Aug 8, 2011

Patrick will provide an overview and brief tutorial on the Palacios HPC-oriented virtual machine monitor. Palacios is a lightweight VMM designed to support architectural, system software, runtime, and application development in large-scale supercomputing systems. In this talk, he will describe the motivation behind the development of Palacios, several key places where it provides leverage on important HPC research problems, its basic architecture, and scaling and performance. As part of this talk, he will also briefly outline future directions for Palacios, how to run it, as well as basic hooks for extending its functionality to support different HPC research
