Virtualization enables multiple operating systems to run on a single hardware platform, empowering developers to:
• Consolidate hardware to reduce system size, cost, and power
• Migrate legacy code onto multi-core hardware
• Enhance security, safety, and availability
This white paper describes how virtualization works and how Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) enhances the benefits of virtualization. It explores common use cases for virtualization and shows how solutions from the Intel Embedded Alliance make it easier to take advantage of virtualization.
