Wind River has unleashed the latest version of its open source, real-time, multi-core-enabled kernel virtualisation technology that delivers performance and live migration enhancements. According to the firm, the Open Virtualisation optimises open source Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology to allow the deployment of network services on virtual machines without the performance loss associated with using traditional, IT-like virtualisation products.

Open Virtualisation boasts near-native hardware performance speeds, whereas standard KVM maximum latency is typically several thousand per cent higher than native results, Wind River indicated. Delivering carrier grade virtualisation and built from a Yocto Project—based infrastructure, Open Virtualisation is a Type 2 hypervisor that leverages the latest open source advancements for greater cross-platform compatibility and interoperability.

The latest version of Open Virtualisation flaunts improved throughput and latency speeds, including an 18 per cent reduction in maximum interrupt latency and improved virtual switching throughput with integrated Intel DPDK vSwitch, offering a 450 per cent increase in virtual switching speeds over standard Open vSwitch. Wind River also said that the solution offers enhanced live migration capabilities including intra-CPU migration to intra-node migration and intra-virtual machine switching and security enhancements based on SELinux. Moreover, it offers additional hardware support for the latest Intel architectures and expanded guest OS support.
