Virtualization in production

How to run industrial real-time applications hardware independent?

Challenge and Motivation

  • Industrial software is mostly hardware bound
  • No dynamic deployment possible
  • Virtualization as enabler for hardware independent usage if software components

Objective

  • Evaluation of virtualization concepts in the context of real time systems
  • Deployment on different hardware systems for performance measurement

Procedure

  • Investigate state of the art of virtualization for real-time OS
  • Elaborate the different approaches regarding performance
  • Implementation of a real-time critical use case
  • Deployment on different computing platforms such as edge, cloud, on premise and embedded systems
  • Performance validation of the different solutions
