The benefits at a glance

Save cost

Consolidating the workloads of previously separated systems on one single system reduces hardware requirements, cabling, and complexity.

Improve reliability

Less systems means reduced points of failure leading to greater reliability, improved mean time between failures, and lower maintenance costs.

Stay ahead

Simply add leading-edge functionalities like AI or secure IoT connectivity by installing another virtual machine and leave your hardware platform unchanged.

Increase efficiency

Make full use of the available resources by running multiple operating systems and leave no core in idle mode to optimize performance per watt and battery runtime.

Streamline development

Separate monolithic software into dedicated function blocks to streamline development, certification, and roll-out without affecting the complete application.

Improve time-to-market and agility

Separating your applications into modular workloads helps to reduce overall complexity, enhance agility and gain important time-to-market advantages.



Hypervisor basics

A hypervisor permits multiple operating systems to run concurrently on one multicore x86-based Computer-on-Module . The hypervisor partitions the available resources including CPU cores, graphics, memory, timers, and I/O devices like PCIe, USB, etc.

These resources are assigned as required to individual virtual machines (VMs). Each VM runs its own operating system. The VMs are completely isolated from each other, so one VM cannot compromise another.

Typical use cases of hypervisor technology

  1. Consolidating the workloads of previously separated systems on one single system to save hardware, cost, and energy.
  2. Separating monolithic software applications into function blocks and running them exclusively in their own OS but still on one system, and
  3. Protecting valuable IP by running critical code on one secured VM and using others for open world communication and end-customer applications.
