    Virtualization allows embedded systems to run real-time and non-real-time code on a single hardware platform, to process both critical and non-critical code, and to display graphically rich user interfaces.  Below, I am providing some links to community posts on this topic that I think are particularly useful:

     

     

     

    Article: Make Real-Time Real with Explicit Hardware Partitioning

    To save on system costs, Smart Factories want the best of both worlds: real-time and non-real-time functions on the same IoT gateway. Learn how an explicit hardware partitioning solution makes this possible without modifying Windows or adding the extra overhead of a hypervisor.

      

    White paper:  Embedded Virtualization and Cyber Security for Industrial Automation

    Read about a partitioned platform approach that consolidates firewall and VPN stacks into virtual appliances with multiple, autonomous operating environments without proprietary workloads or extensive para-virtualization.

     

    White paper:  The Benefits of Virtualization for Embedded Systems

    Learn how enabling multiple OSs to run on a single hardware platform, virtualization empowers developers to: consolidate previously separate functions to reduce system size, cost, and power; bring innovation to market faster while preserving legacy code; and enhance security, safety, and availability through application isolation and software redundancy

     

    Blog: Extending Intel® Virtualization Technology to the Network

    Performance of virtual systems is critical to the success of Network Function Virtualization (NFV).  Check out a new Ethernet controller that extends Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) beyond the processor itself and to the MAC.

     

    Article: Cut Automation Cost and Complexity with Virtualization

    Industrial environments are full of expensive single-purpose computing systems. Learn how a new virtualization kit can help you cut costs by combining multiple systems on a single platform.

     

    White paper: Achieving Real-time Performance on a Virtualized Industrial Control Platform

    Virtualization enables a computing platform to share its resources across multiple workloads-  but can it deliver real-time and deterministic response required by advanced automation processes?   Read about interrupt latency measured in an Intel industrial platform.

     

    White paper:  Embedded Virtualization Enables Consolidated Cyber Security Solution Protecting Windows Clients

    Explore a partitioned platform approach that consolidates firewall and VPN stacks into virtual appliances on a single system with multiple, autonomous operating environments without proprietary workloads or extensive para-virtualization.

     

    White paper:  Using Virtualization to Differentiate Industrial Products

    In this Dell OEM paper, read about how Dell PowerEdge VRTX and Intel ® Virtualization Technology extend the benefits of virtualization into industrial automation and process management solutions.

     

    Blog: Industrial network security from the cloud to the connected edge

    Learn how virtualization helps deliver cyber threat prevention through software and middleware solutions that run on Intel silicon with Intel® vPro technology, enabling comprehensive security for Industrial Control Systems (ICSs) from the edge to the cloud, and back again.
