VIRTU: An Open Virtualization Framework to Test Ground Systems

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The recent developments in virtualization change completely the panorama of the Hardware/OS deployment. New bottlenecks arise in deployment of application stacks where IT industry will spend most of the time to assure automation. VIRTU tool aims at managing and configuring ground applications of space systems on a virtualized environment, based on open tools and cross virtualization support. The tool is a spin-off of previous activities performed by the European Space Operations Center (ESOC) and thus it covers the original needs from the ground data systems infrastructure division of the European Space Agency. The use cases foreseen and applied on Space focus on the development and validation activities of infrastructure or mission specific ground systems, composed typically of distributed systems that could take advantage of virtualized environments.
