Default SmartOS brings KVM to the Solaris kernel

From http://h-online.com/-1323425

Quote:
A team of developers from cloud provider Joyent has ported the Linux kernel hypervisor to Illumos' open source OpenSolaris kernel. The developers say that the KVM (kernel-based virtual machine) adds hardware-supported virtualisation to the SmartOS, complementing the Solaris-based kernel's virtualisation system, Zones, which allows multiple user environments to run in isolation from each other under a single kernel. The operating system also incorporates a BSD package management system and a GNU toolchain.

Why did you open source SmartOS?

SmartOS has always been open source. It is a highly specialized distribution of Illumos. We are announcing that we have contributed back our port of KVM to the open source project.
Also on their blog: http://smartos.org/2011/08/15/kvm-on-illumos/
