Glauber Costa and Don Marti are speaking at the JavaOne conference in San Francisco, on Tuesday, September 30. Hope to see you there.
Here’s what you’re in for:
A lot of the cloud discussion centers around which hypervisors are the best and which management tools will simplify our life the most. But is it the whole story? When problems are addressed from the lower and higher layers, the middleman—the guest operating system—is usually left behind. This changes with OSv, an operating system designed from the ground up to run Java applications in the cloud. OSv is a library OS. Therefore, you can think of using it as being a way to boot a JVM directly into the cloud. Forget OS management: it’s your application and the end of the story. Besides explaining the architecture, this presentation demonstrates how designing an OS with Java in mind can benefit the Java ecosystem.
We’ll demonstrate a nine-second build of a VM from a Java project. Hope to see you there.
