Modularizing and aggregating physical resources in a datacenter depends not only on low-latency networking, but also on software techniques to deliver such capabilities. In the session we will present some practical features and results of our work, as well as discuss implementation details. Among these features are delivering high-performance, transparent, and partially fault tolerant memory aggregation; and reducing the downtime of live migration using post-copy implementations.
We will present and discuss methods of transparently integrating with the MMU at the OS level, without impacting a running VM; and feature some performance benchmarks, including low overhead, scalability, and high bandwidth consumption. In addition, we demonstrate methods of seamlessly handling fail-overs, using RAID-1 features; and experimental ideas and benchmarks regarding page prefetching in such a system.
