For many tasks, the choice between a Type 1 (bare metal) or Type 2 (hosted) hypervisor is a matter of task-based performance or even personal taste.

However, there is a growing breed of solutions which specifically leverage the architecture of a bare metal hypervisor to address new concepts. These tasks range from embedded applications to new types of cloud-hosted software appliances. All leverage the lightweight nature and securability of a Type 1 hypervisor, and most are fostered by the Xen Project ecosystem.

We will review a number real efforts underway including:

-Xen Automotive: crafting an embedded automotive infotainment system
-Realtime virtualization: facilitating realtime processing
-ARM-based hypervisor: new applications, from servers to cell phones, on the ARM architecture
-Unikernel systems: creating highly-dense farms of ultra-small & secure cloud appliances
