Hypervisor-less Virtio for Real-time and Safety - Maarten Koning, Wind River

There are a variety of approaches to leveraging Linux in real-time and safety-critical applications, such as those required for planes, trains, automobiles, and robots. Some approaches utilize tick-less PREEMPT_RT kernels that isolate cores for user-level processes, some introduce user-level or virtualization-based unikernels, some leverage Linux CPU hot-plug features to offload cores to auxiliary runtimes or bare metal applications, and some defer to secondary CPU clusters and run realtime or safety workloads on compute islands as found in heterogeneous SoCs. This technical presentation covers emerging “hypervisor-less virtio” technology and its resultant unifying system architecture for the sharing of resources, such as files, tty, IPC, network interfaces and others, whether between processes, kernels, cores and/or CPU clusters - with Linux as the virtio backend for all the approaches mentioned above. Although this talk goes deep but it is also broadly relevant to computer scientists and technology leaders who create, deliver, and capture embedded software value using a Linux-first approach to real-time and/or safety-based applications.
