Hard Partitioning for Linux: The Jailhouse Hypervisor - Jan Kiszka, Siemens

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

The Jailhouse project adds a new, unique partitioning hypervisor to the Linux ecosystem. It aims at filling the gap between abilities of standard Linux and challenging requirements of low-latency real-time and safety scenarios with an open source solution.

This presentation will introduce the Jailhouse architecture and explain its differences compared to other approaches. While Jailhouse originally only executed non-Linux workload besides the main Linux partition, it just gained support for booting multiple Linux instances, strictly isolated from each other. We will provide information about these recent developments, current hardware requirements for the supported x86 and ARM platforms and will give a short live demonstration.
