In recent years we see an increased interest in hardware accelerated VIRTIO devices. Some vendors are working on these devices that support the virtio ring format. In this talk I will explain what work was done to the VIRTIO specification to support these hardware devices. I will also go into how this is supported in the KVM software stack, which additional concepts (like vhost-mdev) were introduced and what is the current status of development.

By giving this presenation I hope to get in contact with developers that implement virtio devices in software and hardware to find out about their problems and requirements.

I have given presentations at FOSDEM and KVM Forum about VIRTIO, scaling KVM to thousands of guests and the IBM z hardware architecture.
