Luvalley is a lightweight type-1 Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM).
Its part of source codes are derived from KVM to virtualize
CPU instructions and memory management unit (MMU). However, its
overall architecture is completely different from KVM, but somewhat
like Xen. Luvalley runs outside of Linux, just like Xen's architecture.
Any operating system, including Linux, could be used as
Luvalley's scheduler, memory manager, physical device driver provider
and virtual IO device
emulator. Currently, Luvalley supports Linux and Windows. That is to
say, one may run Luvalley to boot a Linux or Windows, and then run
multiple virtualized operating systems on such Linux or Windows.
>From the point of view of Qemu, Luvalley enables Qemu to utilize the
Intel's VT extension to gain much better performance.
