Subject: [ANNOUNCE] (offtopic) Xvisor: eXtensible Versatile hypervISOR
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 27th October 2011 06:25:33 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Announcing Xvisor v0.1.0, a new open source bare-metal hypervisor, which
aims
towards providing virtualization solution, which is light-weight, portable,
and flexible with small memory foot print and less virtualization overhead.
It is distributed under GNU Public License (GPLv2).

Xvisor has most of the features expected from a modern full fledged
hypervisor:
 - Tree based configuration
 - Tickless and high resolution timekeeping
 - Threading framework
 - Device driver framework
 - CPU virtualization
 - Address Space virtualization
 - Device emulation framework
 - Serial port virtualization
 - Managment terminal

Xvisor is currently being ported for two architectures: ARM and MIPS. The
development & testing is being done using QEMU (0.14.xx or higher).

Xvisor ARM is able to boot multiple unmodified Linux-2.6.30.10 or
Linux-3.0.4
guest with a fairly interactive and smooth Busybox 0.19.2 console.
Currently
supported host for Xvisor ARM is Realview-PB-A8 Board emulated by QEMU. It
is
also being ported to real hardware, specifically Beagle Board.

Please try out our Xivsor ARM demo on QEMU (0.14.xx or higher). To download
the demo tarball visit the link below:

Xvisor MIPS is still a work in progress and will be announced very soon.
