Executive Summary

As modern hardware becomes increasingly complex, it becomes more difficult to create efficient software for common computing workloads. One way to manage this complexity is to employ holistic solutions that consider multiple layers of hardware and software in conjunction, allowing software to adapt and react to changing conditions at run time. This paper focuses on lightweight modifications to commodity hardware that enable virtual execution environments to help solve problems in the areas of power, reliability, security, and performance.
