Virtualization: Does It Have a Place in the Embedded Linux World?
While high performance computing environment gains many advantages from virtual compute systems, it’s significantly more difficult for embedded system space to reap the same rewards. Often, this is due to resource constraints, especially RAM, imposed by classic embedded systems. However, with recent technological advantages it’s becoming increasingly easier to implement virtualization within embedded systems.
Take a quick look at this blog post to learn about how Linux was able to create a virtual system small enough to fit in their embedded system space.
