In KVM, file sharing between the host and its Linux and Windows guests is completely different. For Linux guests, you can use the NFS or the Virtiofs to share files. In this post, I’ll show how to share files between KVM host and Linux guest using virtiofs.
The virt-manager, also known as the Virtual Machine Manager, is a graphical application for creating and managing guest virtual machines in KVM. You can install guest OS in virt-manager, create new domains, configure domain resource allocation, and manage virtual hardware. This blog will show you how.
On most Linux servers, the only interface available to you will be a command-line interface. So, the way to install a KVM guest OS from the command-line on such systems is through a serial console using the virt-install tool. In this blog, I'll show you how.
When you install KVM on Linux, it transforms your Linux distribution into a type-1 hypervisor (bare-metal), enabling you to operate virtual machines at speeds close to the host machine. In this blog, you will learn how to install KVM hypervisor properly on a Linux distro.
