Research on the Performance of Network Virtualization Based on Xen


Article Preview

It is known to all that the performance of Para-virtualization virtualization machine is much better than full virtualization machine's. However, the full virtualization machine has advantage that it need not require modify the operating system kernel. Therefore we worked to improve the performance of network in the full virtualization environment. This paper provide a method to improve Xen network virtualization performance and so we could be both using the full virtualization machine without change the operating system and improve its performance to a high level.
