EMBEDDED LINUX CONFERENCE EUROPE - Wind River®, a world leader in embedded software for intelligent connected systems, has introduced the latest version of its open source, real-time, multi-core-enabled kernel virtualization technology offering, Wind River Open Virtualization. The new version includes performance and live migration enhancements. Open Virtualization optimizes open source Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology to allow the deployment of network services on virtual machines without the performance loss associated with using traditional, IT-like virtualization products. Open Virtualization delivers near-native hardware performance speeds, whereas standard KVM maximum latency is typically several thousand percent higher than native results. Delivering carrier grade virtualization and built from a Yocto Project–based infrastructure, Open Virtualization is a Type 2 hypervisor that leverages the latest open source advancements for greater cross-platform compatibility and interoperability. The latest version of Open Virtualization includes the following features:
