Abstract

No virtual machine hypervisors are currently available on the MINIX 3 microkernel operating system. I will port the open source QEMU virtualization software to MINIX 3 to investigate the possibilities for running such software and its performance in a microkernel environment. Moreover, my thesis highlights difficulties experienced while porting so that it can serve as a manual for other porting projects.
