  2. The demo will cover Xen Automotive. We will elaborate technical solutions for the identified gaps: 1. ARM architecture - support HW virtualization extensions for embedded systems 2. Stability requirements 3. RT Scheduler 4. Rich virtualized peripheral support (WiFi, Gfx, MM, USB, etc.) 5. Performance benchmarking 6. Security

  3. This demo was shown as part of the following Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit talk. The slides for the talk can be seen at slideshare.net/xen_com_mgr/xen-automotive-rc2

    The presentation will cover Xen vs Xen Automotive gaps and analysis. We will elaborate technical solutions for the identified gaps:
    * ARM architecture - support HW virtualization extensions for embedded systems
    * Stability requirements
    * RT Scheduler
    * Rich virtualized peripheral support (WiFi, Gfx, MM, USB, etc.)
    * Performance benchmarking
    * Security

    The audience is anyone interesting in building OSS based IVI systems. Attendees can expect the OSS stack detailed architecture, current status of the project, the challenges seen, road map and much more.

    Embedded systems are becoming powerful enough that virtualization is now both possible and interesting. Xen, as a very tiny microkernel based hypervisor looks like a very good fit for the embedded environment, not to mention that it has been ported to ARM with the number of supported boards in constant increase.

    This talk will outline the major strengths of the Xen architecture, when it comes to use Xen on embedded systems. It will also identify and discuss the areas where there is still room for improvement. It will go through preliminary experimental results on assessing some of the typical real-time requirements (such as responsiveness and predictability), for the benefit of everyone out there that would like to build its embedded product on top of Xen.

    On the concrete side, we will show how to setup an 'Andorid on Xen' environment, which results from a fruitful collaboration between the Xen community and other interested parties from the Android community. We think this could be very useful as an example for anyone interested in working with us, with the aim of being successful in the embedded virtualization product space.

    Full description: The goal of this talk is twofold: - provide a general enough view of the Xen architecture, focusing on

    why it could be particularly well suited for the embedded virtualization usecases show how the Xen community is tackling this new challenge, trying to involve all the (potentially) interesting parties and reaching the highest possible levels of cross-project collaboration

    Public compute clouds provide a flexible platform to host applications as a set of appliances, e.g., web servers or databases. Each appliance usually contains an OS kernel and userspace processes, within which applications access resources via APIs such as POSIX. The flexible architecture of the cloud comes at a cost: the addition of another layer in the already complex software stack. This reduces performance and increases the size of the trusted computing base.

    Our Mirage operating system proposes a radically different way of building these appliances. Mirage supports the progressive specialisation of functional language (OCaml) application source code, and gradually replaces traditional OS components with type-safe libraries. This ultimately results in "unikernels": sealed, fixed-purpose images that run directly on a hypervisor without an intervening guest OS such as Linux.

    Developers can write their code using their usual tools, only making the final push to the cloud once they are satisfied their code works. As they explicitly link in components that would normally be provided by the host OS, the resulting unikernels are also highly compact: facilities that are not used are simply not included in the resulting unikernel. For example, the self-hosting Mirage web server image is less than a megabyte in size!

    We will describe the architecture of Mirage in the talk, show some code examples, and interesting benchmark results that compare the performance of our unikernels to traditional applications such as Apache, BIND and OpenSSH.

The Xen Project community develops open source virtualization technology, such as the Xen Project Hypervisor a type-1 or baremetal hypervisor, which makes it possible to run many instances of an operating system or indeed different operating systems in parallel on a single machine (or host). Xen Project technology is used as the basis for a number of different commercial and open source applications, such as: server virtualization, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), desktop virtualization, security applications, embedded and hardware appliances. Xen Project technology is powering the largest clouds in production today.
