Virtualization showdown – FreeBSD’s bhyve vs. Linux’s KVM Virtualization  

virtualization

The bhyve hypervisor makes it easy to run reliable, high-performance virtual machines on a FreeBSD host system. In this article, we test the performance of virtual machines running Windows, Linux, and FreeBSD itself under bhyve—and we compare and contrast with performance of the same virtual machines running under Linux’s well-known KVM hypervisor. Understanding the pros and cons of each hypervisor helps you make confident, informed decisions when deciding how to set up your virtualization hosts.

Easily Migrate from Linux to FreeBSD

Linux to Freebsd

With their common Unix heritage, Linux and FreeBSD have much in common. By knowing their idiosyncrasies it is easy to adapt when going between the two systems. Take a tour of some of the differences that are notable when migrating to FreeBSD. Along the way, we’ll give insights into the background and show some useful tricks.

Part 3: Building Your Own FreeBSD-based NAS with ZFS 

Today, we’ll concentrate on exposing the data on your NAS to the network using NFS, Samba, and iSCSI shares. Network File System (NFS) is a commonly used protocol for accessing NAS systems, especially with Linux or FreeBSD clients. We’ll provide an overview of each type of share to help guide you in deciding which is most suited to the clients that will be accessing the NAS.
Let’s examine how non-developer contributors enhance user experience, improve bug reporting, and influence feature requests, all while becoming advocates and evangelists for your open source project.
