SUSE Linux Enterprise Virtual Machine Driver Pack

Get More from Your Virtual Machines and Legacy Apps

Paravirtualization dramatically increases the performance of your virtual machines. A paravirtualized system gives you access to up to 95% of your virtual machine's computing power by forcing the operating system and hypervisor to work together more efficiently. It does this by opening additional channels of communication between the Xen and KVM hypervisors in SUSE Linux Enterprise and the unmodified guest operating systems running in a virtual environment, thus accelerating network and storage input/output and improving overall efficiency. The paravirtualized drivers in the SUSE Virtual Machine Driver Pack deliver the performance benefits of paravirtualization, with the wider availability of full virtualization.
