Training Tuesday Edition - 8

This week’s blog presents a set of short videos on how to use Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) virtualization on Oracle Linux 8. The KVM code was first announced in 2006 and was merged into the mainline Linux kernel as part of version 2.6.20, in February 2007. Therefore, KVM is part of Linux.

KVM is an open-source type-1 (bare-metal) hypervisor that permits a system running Oracle Linux 8 to host multiple virtual machines (VMs) or guests. These VMs use the system's physical computing resources to virtualize an operating system as a regular Linux user-space process. In these videos, we cover installation, management, creation, and other aspects related to using KVM virtualization on Oracle Linux 8.

Here’s the list of videos and the time it takes for you to complete each one:

Be sure to come back for our next edition, which will cover virtualization using Oracle VM VirtualBox. New videos are added on an ongoing basis so check back often.
