Fifteen years of virtualized system software has led increasingly powerful capabilities, from containers to FaaS stacks, offering increasing levels of density and agility to application developers. These modern solutions, however, build on top of legacy layers that predate cloud computing as we now know it. Rethinking and reinventing these lower layers of the system stack can offer even greater improvements in density, performance, and security.

One such example is at the VMM layer, which commonly depends on software that includes emulation and other unnecessary features. The rust-vmm project provides an alternative approach: a toolkit to build workload-specific virtual machine monitors. This keynote will discuss new developments in that project, from support of lightweight virtual machines to FaaS, and why you’d want to use different VMMs for these different delivery models.
