Multicore Virtualization – XEN on ARM VE – Part 1

Multicore Virtualization – XEN on ARM VE – Part 1

Embedded systems are moving from single core systems to multicore systems, dominantly for power saving, multitasking, portability, and cost. The increase in multicore systems come with its own complexities of parallelism, data management, and load balancing. 

The approach to supervising different operating systems is called virtualization, which helps immensely in system security and resource management. This white paper is the first of the six parts, which discusses an introduction to virtualization and its related concepts. The papers would be based on the open source XEN project for ARM cores. This provides a deep insight of virtualization for embedded systems and on embedded cores. Download this whitepaper to get a deeper understanding of virtualization.
