  • Workload Consolidation & Embedded Virtualization in Safety Critical Application Recorded: Feb 26 2019 25 mins
    Emeka Nwafor, Senior Director Product Management and Ecosystems, Wind River
    As more and more processors with multi-core architectures are deployed in embedded systems, embedded virtualization emerges as a substantial consideration in the software system design. Virtualization enables the abstraction of underlying hardware and offers the support of running multiple operating systems and services inside separate virtual machines on top of the multiple processor cores. This enables workload consolidation of tasks which was previously accomplished by using multiple discrete processors running multiple operating systems. Thus workload consolidation enables developers and system designers to reduce not only the total production/BOM cost, but also maintenance and operational costs through innovative new use cases such as enabling the convergence between OT and IT applications running on a single multi-core system.

    This presentation describes the basic concept of virtualization for workload consolidation in embedded systems. Then it describes system design consideration by taking the focus of using virtualization in safety-critical relevant applications such as avionics, industrial, and automotive. The presentation will also present a sample implementation of a type 1 Hypervisor-based software platform which enables consolidation between safety certified applications and non-safety applications running on a single multi-core system

  • Video Talk: Utilizing Workload Consolidation for Industry 4.0 Recorded: Oct 16 2018 9 mins
    Pavan Singh, Sr. Director - Business & Market Development for Industrial Solutions
    The industrial world is going through a transformation known as Industry 4.0 or the Industrial Internet of Things. This transformation is leading to smart manufacturing systems, with more compute capability at the edge. However, adding more compute capability increases OPEX. This is due to complexity of computer integration, compute options, as well as, cabling, power and maintenance costs. The solution to solving this increase cost is “workload consolidation”.

    Workload consolidation within the factory will allow multiple compute workloads to run on a common computing platform. The control of individual machines, manufacturing data collection, communications, security and safety functions can be consolidated into “virtual machines” within a single compute platform. This also had the advantage that all the data can be analyzed locally, and so quicker decisions can be made rather than going back to the data center or cloud for further instructions.

    In this session, learn how advances in processing performance, real-time operating systems, and virtualization technology are enabling workload consolidation in the factory to drive global industries from “automatic to autonomous” for Industry 4.0.
