The Benefits of Virtualization for Embedded Systems
Source: Intel Corporation
Well established in the enterprise space, virtualization is now receiving attention for a wide range of embedded solutions. By enabling multiple Operating Systems (OSs) to run simultaneously on a single hardware platform, virtualization empowers embedded developers and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) 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. Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) enhances these benefits through unique hardware accelerators that improve the performance and security of virtualized solutions.
