  • Moodle: Working together to strengthen education – our obligation to future generations

    At Moodle, we support open education as crucial to reimagining and renewing education for our collective benefit. At its core, this movement recognises that an empowered teacher or educator requires access to quality resources, skills and tools in order to facilitate the education of a group of people. This includes open methods in accessing resources, an equitable approach in how to use resources and tools effectively and an open ed tech infrastructure that is reliable and accessible to all. Moodle supports the open education movement in three key ways.

  • Cloud Hypervisor 21.0 Offers More Efficient Local Live Migration: 3s Down To 50ms - Phoronix

    Cloud-Hypervisor 21.0 was released this past week as its first feature release since this open-source Intel project moved to the Linux Foundation with backing from Microsoft and Arm. Cloud-Hypervisor 21.0 brings new features and fixes to this Rust-written hypervisor.

Cloud Hypervisor feels need for speedy updates in 21.0 release

  • Cloud Hypervisor feels need for speedy updates in 21.0 release

    A good month after getting a new home, virtual machine monitor Cloud Hypervisor is celebrating its first major release under the auspices of the Linux Foundation.

    Version 21 of the project is mainly about speeding up live upgrades. Users can now pass a --local option to the ch-remote send-migration command to pass file descriptors over the UNIX socket. This means the tool doesn’t have to copy the guest RAM anymore when upgrading a VMM, which the project claims lead to a speedup “in the order of 50ms vs 3s.”
