Wind River, a provider of 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.
According to a release, Open Virtualization optimizes open source Kernel-based Virtual Machine 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
The latest version of Open Virtualization includes the following features:
-Improved throughput and latency speeds, including an 18 percent reduction in maximum interrupt latency since the introduction of the product earlier this year
-Improved virtual switching throughput with integrated Intel DPDK vSwitch, offering a 450 percent increase in virtual switching speeds over standard Open vSwitch.
-Enhanced live migration capabilities, including intra-CPU migration to intra-node migration and intra-virtual machine switching.
-oVirt-powered live migration console, including support for guest operating systems migration
-Security enhancements based on SELinux
-Additional hardware support for the latest
-Expanded guest OS support
"As new devices continue to connect to an increasingly strained network, next-generation telecom equipment must scale to support technologies such as cloud and NFV in order to meet rising data traffic demands and address new service deployment challenges," said
The company noted that Open Virtualization is a high value software add-on that works with Wind River Linux. Wind River Linux delivers a commercial-grade Linux platform and out-of-the box user experience with a rich set of capabilities based on the latest open source technologies, fully integrated development tools, worldwide support and maintenance, and expert professional services.
