Linux on KVM

You can run Linux® as a guest of the KVM hypervisor.

KVM is a strategic open source component for the IBM Z® and IBM® LinuxONE platforms.

IBM provides the KVM enablement for IBM Z and LinuxONE to the open source community, enabling distribution partners of IBM to deliver KVM on IBM Z and IBM LinuxONE.

For more information about KVM on your distribution, contact your Linux distributor.
