Automatic software deployment using user-level virtualization for cloud-computing

Youhui Zhang, Yanhua Li, Weimin Zheng
2013 Future generations computer systems  
Most existing systems use virtual appliances to provide this function, which couples application software with virtual machine (VM) image(s) closely.  ...  Moreover, the chosen software is not pre-installed (or pre-stored) in the VM image; instead, it can be streamed from the application depository on demand when the user launches it in a running VM to save  ...  This enables a fast software deployment without waiting for an entire image to be downloaded prior to starting its execution.  ...

Micro-CernVM: slashing the cost of building and deploying virtual machines

J Blomer, D Berzano, P Buncic, I Charalampidis, G Ganis, G Lestaris, R Meusel, V Nicolaou
2014 Journal of Physics, Conference Series  
The traditional virtual machine building and and deployment process is centered around the virtual machine hard disk image.  ...  This allows the use of a tiny bootable CD image that comprises only a Linux kernel while the rest of the operating system is provided on demand by CernVM-FS.  ...  Conclusion We have presented CernVM, a 12 MB virtual machine image that loads the actual operating system files on demand through CernVM-FS.  ...
