Abstract

This paper describes the generic virtualization service GVirtuS (Generic Virtualization Service), a framework for development of split-drivers for cloud virtualization solutions. The main goal of GVirtuS is to provide tools for developing elastic computing abstractions for high-performance private and public computing clouds. In this paper we focus our attention on GPU virtualization. However, GVirtuS is not limited to accelerator-based architectures: a virtual high performance parallel file system and a MPI channel are ongoing projects based on our split driver virtualization technology.
