Introducing ACRN™: A Big Little Hypervisor for IoT Development
By Imad Sousou
IoT developers face mounting demands as connected devices are increasingly expected to support a range of hardware resources, operating systems, and software tools/applications. As we’ve seen in other market segments, virtualization is key to meeting these broad needs.
However, existing solutions don’t offer the right size and flexibility for IoT. Data center hypervisor code is too big,..
ACRN™ is a flexible, lightweight reference hypervisor with significant code contributions from Intel® Corporation
PORTLAND, Ore. (Embedded Linux Conference), March 13, 2018 – The Linux Foundation today announced a new embedded reference hypervisor project called ACRN™ (pronounced “acorn”). With engineering and code contributions from Intel® Corporation, the hypervisor was built with real-time and safety-criticality in mind, and optimized to streamline embedded development. This project will provide a framework for industry leaders to build an open source embedded hypervisor specifically for the Internet of Things (IoT)…
