WHITE PAPER: Leveraging Virtualization in Aerospace & Defense Applications

Version 1

    For Aerospace & Defense applications, the popularity of ATCA is growing rapidly because it addresses the key requirements of next generation systems while creating opportunities to reduce SWaP (size, weight, and power), increase functionality and accelerate time to market.


    Benefits can be expanded further through the implementation of virtualization—a complementary technology that provides better performance on multi-technology, enables multiple applications to safely work on a single blade, eases legacy software migration and facilitates software failover, among other usage models.


    From the perspective of Aerospace & Defense, this paper reviews some of the more interesting virtualization usage models and implementation insights arising from real-world projects involving Radisys engineers.
