What is a hypervisor?
A hypervisor is the basic abstraction layer of software. The hypervisor is responsible for low-level tasks such as CPU scheduling and is responsible for memory isolation for resident VMs. The hypervisor abstracts the hardware for the VMs. The hypervisor has no knowledge of networking, external storage devices, video, etc. The Linux Foundation Xen Project™ community develops and maintains the Xen Project hypervisor as free software licensed under the GNU General Public License. Refer to the Linux Foundation Xen Project for more details.
