It's time again for the LUV Beginner's Workshop and OLPC Corner. Come along on 19th of February. Talk: "Virtualisation for Beginners" by Daniel Jitnah
We intend to cover things like:
In addition, Daniel Jitnah will be giving an introduction to Virtualisation.
I will have a brief look at what virtualisation means, both from a technological point of view and from a "buzz word" point of view. There are different usages of the term "virtualisation" in IT. From a technological view, though, in this talk I will adopt the more common usage referring to hosting a Operating System on another one, eg: Windows on Linux.
I will also present options for virtualisation on Linux systems, and discuss features of some systems. I will also demonstrate how to set up a virtual machine, using either VirtualBox or KVM (or QEMU).
Daniel is an Independent Developer and Consultant in Linux and Open Source System. He has been using Linux for over 10yrs, starting with an old version of Slackware, and then moving to RedHat 5.1 - From then on he never looked back. He also claims to having never used Windows or Microsoft software as his primary Operating System. Prior to using Linux, he was using OS/2 and before that he used plain DOS, IBM branded and DR-DOS. His first computer was a Commodore 128 system!! - Unfortunately - he also had a dab of bad SCO Xenix at some stage in his life :( !!
