Feedback form is now closed.
KVM has grown substantially over the last few years, in more ways than one. The number of commits to x86/kvm nearly doubled year-over-year from 2019 to 2020, and rose again in 2021. KVM gained a RISC-V ported in 2021, and KVM on arm64 will be deployed on Android and multiple cloud providers in the not-too-distant-future. KVM's size and complexity has also grown to support new use cases and new hardware features. And KVM's worldwide footprint has undoubtedly grown along with cloud computing in general. Sean will examine several of the challenges KVM faces, and how KVM and its community can address those challenges to scale up the number of KVM contributors and end users, as well as the number of technologies and use cases KVM supports.
