Since its release in March, we’ve seen lots of interests from the developer community and industry partners on the ACRN project. As a flexible, lightweight reference hypervisor, built with real-time and safety-criticality in mind, ACRN is optimized to streamline embedded development through an open source platform. It provides a framework for industry leaders to build an open source embedded hypervisor specifically for the Internet of Things (IoT).

Hypervisors are pretty complex pieces of software, and that means new ones don’t appear on the scene very often — although a few new hypervisors designed for container environments have hit the headlines in the last year or so.
But alongside containers, there is one other area of technology that has been touted to become huge in the next few years, and that’s the Internet of Things (IoT), which includes the potentially mega-huge Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)…
