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:
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
