MIKELANGELO project explains new approach to improve I/O performance of virtual machines for Big Data and HPC

30 Oct 2015 - The MIKELANGELO project aims to improve the I/O performance of virtual machines. The inability of virtual machines to run HPC and big data applications in production due to low I/O performance motivated the work of the project. MIKELANGELO builds on KVM, a widely used open source hypervisor. The project develops sKVM, a version of KVM optimized for I/O workloads.
