Innovation around heterogeneous ARM embedded systems

research in embedded systems virtualization to support kvm on arm virtualization extensions

Virtual Open Systems has proven, since the beginning of its history, a strong capability to surf the innovation by constantly investing in research and development related to open source virtualization for heterogeneous embedded systems, based on the Linux Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor. The company is involved in several European and national consortium driving the future evolutions and extensions of open source KVM-on-ARM hypervisor, while reinforcing international partnerships with leading companies and academical research centers. The running research projects, the company is involved in, cover important aspects of the embedded systems virtualization for several market segments (automotive, consumer, networking, servers, mobile) for which the adoption of virtualization technology has become a must.

Research projects for innovation in virtualization KVM extensions

Proven skills in virtualization software development for ARM based heterogeneous embedded systems and an ability in looking ahead to the next innovation extension to enable the connected objects world in the era of Internet of Things (IoT) have contributed to build a solid reputation around Virtual Open Systems. Many commercial and academical partners look for teaming up with Virtual Open Systems when innovation and research represent the target of new projects, such as:
