Virtualization for hardware independent deployment of industrial applications
This ICNAP study followed three phasis in development. First a comprehensive analysis of technologies used for virtualization as well as a market analysis on existing real time virtualization technologies has been done. In parallel the use-cases for deploying such real time virtualization systems were investigated together with the ICNAP partners. In a second step the implementation of a real time virtualization system according to a selected use-case took place. Lastly the performance of the implemented solution is measured and put in contrast with the results of industrial real time solutions. This report divides the three phases of the study in corresponding chapters and gives an overview to the topic but can also be used as a guideline to try and test the implementation. The research done on the status quo for real time virtualization and the best practices in implementing them is summed up. Further the first results of the performance measurements done in test environments is included in this report and validated with common industrial solutions in the market.
