ARM: Virtualization Extensions - Marc Zyngier & Thomas Molgaard, ARM Ltd

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The ARM architecture is expanding its presence beyond the traditional embedded device market. Virtualization capabilities were added to the latest revision of the ARMv7 architecture (with processors like Cortex A7 and A15), and this was extended further with ARMv8 (64bit). The design of the virtualization extensions has made it possible to fairly easily port the Xen and KVM hypervisors.

This presentation will give a hypervisor agnostic view of the virtualization extensions from a CPU level, as well as some of the key peripherals developed as part of this. We will also describe some of the techniques that both Xen and KVM use, and present an overview of the ARM virtualization ecosystem.
