Embedded virtualization paired with multi-core CPUs is paving the way for the consolidation of multiple dissimilar workloads within a single embedded device. Products such as those found in industrial automation, medical imaging, and networking or telecom applications are enjoying the benefits of increased compute capacity and decreased power consumption offered by multi-core CPUs. Embedded virtualization, multi-core CPUs, and hardware features offered by Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) provide device manufacturers opportunities and options to ensure that the varying priorities of device traffic are not compromised when moving to a virtualized platform.
