VirtFS--A virtualization aware File System pass-through
This paper describes the design and implementation of a paravirtualized file system interface for Linux in the KVM environment. Today’s solution of sharing host files on the guest through generic network file systems like NFS and CIFS suffer from major performance and feature deficiencies as these protocols are not designed or optimized for virtualization. To address the needs of the virtualization paradigm, in this paper we are introducing a new paravirtualized file system called VirtFS. This new file system is currently under development and is being built using QEMU, KVM, VirtIO technologies and 9P2000.L protocol.
