[Qemu-devel] FVD Paper Accepted to USENIX ATC'11

I am pleased to report that a short of version of the FVD-cow paper I 
previously posted here was just accepted to USENIX Annual Technical 
Conference (USENIX ATC'11), which is a prestigious and highly competitive 
research conference in the systems field. This shows from another angle 
(in addition to the good performance numbers) that FVD indeed advances the 
state-of-the-art in virtual machine image format. Coincidentally, Fabrice 
Bellard's original paper on QEMU was also published in USENIX ATC several 
years ago. 

The draft version of the long FVD-cow paper is available at 
http://researcher.watson.ibm.com/researcher/files/us-ctang/FVD-cow.pdf . 
This paper focuses on the on-demand image streaming feature of FVD, i.e., 
using FVD's bitmap to efficiently implement copy-on-write, copy-on-read, 
and adaptive prefetching. Other features of FVD (including journal, small 
lookup table, and the most recent work on efficient internal snapshot) are 
not yet published in research paper, and will be posted here once 
published, which can serve as detailed documentation of the FVD algorithm 
and code.
