We will share our works to adapt QEMU to fast deploy intensive micro services in a extremely short period ( < 35 ms) with less resource utilization which is comparable to containers that includes directly starting a VM from the parent, C/R QEMU to start a new VM, modularizing QEMU, reducing resource usage for both QEMU & Linux VMs etc.
