MAD24-406 Orko where are we now - lessons from enabling VirtIO media devices



  • Friday, 17 May 10:20 - 10:45
  • Room: Keynote | Zaragoza III+IV

Project Orko is a Linaro project that has been working on enabling VirtIO for complex edge devices across multiple hypervisors. In the last year we've been looking at enabling multi-media devices including sound and graphics. In this talk we shall look at some of the challenges we have encountered and the extra demands multi-media devices make of the VirtIO stack. We shall go into details about how the Friday demo was put together and what is still left to do and in what part VirtIO can play in glueing together complex edge systems.

Project Orko: VirtIO on Xen



We are demonstrating virtio-gpu running on a Xen hypervisor using an AMD GPU and the Ampere AVA development platform.
