During last year, we have seen the rise of LibraryOSes in the hypervisor world. Fast, scalable and light, they bring to hypervisors the resource efficiency of Containers while maintaining many of its well known isolation and manageability advantages.
While most LibraryOSes are niche in what they do, OSv is designed to run almost any POSIX compliant application and just have a slight focus in the Java application. Which applications can we run? And why? What's the story with Java and what can users gain from it? And more importantly: How can Xen users and the Xen community at large benefit from OSv? Those are some of the questions that I intend to cover in this presentation.
