Course content
Virtualization is used based on the trend of cloud computing. This virtualization is supported by operating system.
In this course, the student will understand how the virtualization is realized and how operating systems provide their functionalities.
Purpose of class
Virtualization is commonly used nowadays which is supported by CPU functions and operating system. Therefore understanding how the virtualization is realized is becoming important. In this class, we understand the role of operating system and how to realize virtualization based on real system implementation.
Goals and objectives
  1. Student can understand the basic structure of binary file and parse it by programming languages
  2. Student can emulate essential binary operators for virtualization with practices
  3. Student can emulate system calls provided by operating systems.
