The Amaze Cloud Platform deploys a virtualisation technology known as KVM.
KVM is the acronym for Kernel-based Virtual Machine, a hypervisor technology that is part of the mainline Linux kernel.
In the KVM architecture, the virtual machine is implemented as regular Linux process, scheduled by the standard Linux scheduler. In fact, each virtual CPU appears as a regular Linux process. This allows KVM to benefit from all the features of the Linux kernel.
