    Who is using BSD as a hypervisor? Asking for a friend

      fml. All the services into the cloud!!@! All the cloud back on your desktop!@!!!1


      So essentially they're re-implementing what's already provided by the following tech in different ways...

      (inhales) Docker/runc/podman/containerd/VirtualBox/qemu/VMWare/FreeBSD jails/Solaris Zones/Xen/Linux chroots/Vagrant/ (inhales) /Proxmox/openstack/Gnome Boxes/libvirt/Bochs/Nanobox/Mesos/rkt/lxc/openvz/ (inhales) / cri-o / Parallels / kvm / xenserver / minikube / kubeadm

        This is better.
        This is their own tech.

          It sees some use because it's a lot different than most other hypervisors. Bhyve does no emulation and is a very thin, simple layer. (as opposed to KVM or ESXi that are more like the kitchen sink) A Bhyve host might have less than 10 PID's on the system in total. (typical Linux would have hundreds)

          One *might* use it to make hardware agnostic guest images while reserving almost all the system for the guest.

            True, look at... (looks around)

            (inhales) upstart, unity, Mir, ubuntu one, Ubuntu Touch, Ubuntu Phone, Ubuntu TV, Snaps (oops, too early?)

              Does not answer the question.

              Afaik the only place where I know people use Bhyve is FreeNAS.

              Bhyve does no emulation and is a very thin, simple layer. (as opposed to KVM or ESXi that are more like the kitchen sink)
              Considering that bhyve and KVM support similar features and are broadly similar in CLI commands (and can be both controlled by libvirt-based tools), I'd disagree with this statement.

              A Bhyve host might have less than 10 PID's on the system in total. (typical Linux would have hundreds)
              Both Bhyve and KVM are kernel hypervisors, so I'm not sure why the number of processes in a system (which is the userspace) is connected to them.
              On a kernel-based virtualization host you only need a few services (ssh, network, and if you want something fancy you can add a web GUI or an API receiver like libvirt in headless mode) regardless of the technology used.
