SANS security expert Jake William warned, "Meltdown may target kernel addresses that are shared between the container and host kernel in many paravirtualization instances (e.g.
Previous implementations are mostly based on paravirtualization because the hardware architectures do not fulfill the requirements for a full-virtualization of the Popek & Goldberg theorem [1].
In cloud computing, we're interested in techniques such as paravirtualization, which allows a single server to be treated as multiple virtual servers, and clustering, which allows multiple servers to be treated as a single server.
