Cloud Hypervisor Project welcomes AMD as a Member of the Advisory Board

As a mem짯ber of the Advi짯so짯ry Board, AMD will help dri짯ve open source col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on and deve짯lo짯p짯ment in the Cloud Hyper짯vi짯sor community.

SAN FRANCISCO, Novem짯ber 8, 2022  The Cloud Hyper짯vi짯sor Pro짯ject, a lea짯ding vir짯tu짯al machi짯ne moni짯tor (VMM) for run짯ning modern cloud workloads, is exci짯ted to wel짯co짯me AMD to their Advi짯so짯ry Board. The Linux Foun짯da짯ti짯on and the foun짯ding mem짯bers of the Cloud Hyper짯vi짯sor Pro짯ject would like to wel짯co짯me AMD and look for짯ward to working with them to fos짯ter an envi짯ron짯ment of open source collaboration.

Sin짯ce 2021, the Cloud Hyper짯vi짯sor Pro짯ject, under the umbrel짯la of the Linux Foun짯da짯ti짯on, has had broad sup짯port across indus짯tries inclu짯ding both from CPU manu짯fac짯tu짯r짯ers as well as public cloud ope짯ra짯tors. The Cloud Hyper짯vi짯sor pro짯ject is desi짯gned for sup짯port짯ing modern workloads both on the Edge as well as on the Cloud.  As the Linux Foun짯da짯ti짯on con짯ti짯nues to stan짯dar짯di짯ze key com짯pon짯ents of the soft짯ware stack for mana짯ging and orchest짯ra짯ting modern workloads, Cloud Hyper짯vi짯sor will con짯ti짯nue to play an important role.

As a major CPU ven짯dor, AMD셲 decis짯i짯on to join the pro짯ject is a reflec짯tion on the momen짯tum of this effort to stan짯dar짯di짯ze one of the key tech짯no짯lo짯gy com짯pon짯ents in a modern vir짯tua짯liza짯ti짯on stack the vir짯tu짯al machi짯ne moni짯tor. A VMM uses the func짯tion짯a짯li짯ty sur짯faced by a hyper짯vi짯sor to help crea짯te and mana짯ge vir짯tu짯al machi짯nes. In addi짯ti짯on to mana짯ging the CPU and memo짯ry resour짯ces among짯st the vir짯tu짯al machi짯nes under manage짯ment, a VMM also pro짯vi짯des both I/O and plat짯form resour짯ces for the guest vir짯tu짯al machines.

AMD looks for짯ward to brin짯ging our robust port짯fo짯lio and expe짯ri짯ence to the Cloud Hyper짯vi짯sor pro짯ject to dri짯ve more free짯dom and choice into the vir짯tua짯liza짯ti짯on space, said Robert Hor짯muth, CVP of Archi짯tec짯tu짯re and Stra짯tegy, Dat짯a짯cen짯ter Solu짯ti짯ons Group, AMD.

As a major CPU ven짯dor, AMDs con짯tri짯bu짯ti짯ons to the Cloud Hyper짯vi짯sor will be super valuable, said K. Y Sri짯ni짯va짯san, Advi짯so짯ry Board Mem짯ber from Micro짯soft.

Cloud Hyper짯vi짯sor wel짯co짯mes orga짯niza짯ti짯ons and con짯tri짯bu짯tors from around the world to help dri짯ve the inno짯va짯ti짯on and adop짯ti짯on of cut짯ting-edge VMMs for cloud-based workloads.
