Starting from simple desktop virtual machines to concurrently run different operating systems and to support software development and debugging, over server consolidation, up to the key technology for cloud-based services, system virtualization plays a central role in modern IT.
This lecture delves into the inner-workings of virtualization technologies and full system simulation and presents concepts from the following areas:
- Technologies for System Virtualization (DBT, VT, etc.)
- Hypervisors and Simulators
- Abstraction and Management of Resources and Devices
- Special Concepts (Attack Reconstruction in Honey Pots, VM Replication, etc.)
