Dear David,

In Sacramento about to give Visual Bash presentation to SHARE West...

Wish me luck!

THE LINUX FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES AN OPEN SOURCE REFERENCE HYPERVISOR
PROJECT DESIGNED FOR IOT DEVICE

The Linux Foundation

PORTLAND, Ore., March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Embedded Linux
Conference – The Linux Foundation [4] today announced a new embedded
reference hypervisor project called ACRN(tm) (pronounced "acorn"). With
engineering and code contributions from Intel(R) Corporation, the
hypervisor was built with real-time and safety-criticality in mind, and
optimized to streamline embedded development. This project will provide
a framework for industry leaders to build an open source embedded
hypervisor specifically for the Internet of Things (IoT).

ACRN is comprised of two main components: the hypervisor and its device
model, complete with rich I/O mediators. Intel's experience and
leadership in virtualization technology was key to the initial
development of this hypervisor solution.

"With project ACRN, embedded developers have a new, immediately
available hypervisor option," said Jim Zemlin, executive director of The
Linux Foundation. "ACRN's optimization for resource-constrained devices
and focus on isolating safety-critical workloads and giving them
priority make the project applicable across many IoT use cases. We're
pleased to welcome project ACRN and invite embedded developers to get
involved in the new community."

Developers benefit from ACRN's small, real-time footprint, which is
flexible enough to accommodate different uses and provides consideration
for safety-critical workloads. Consolidating a diverse set of IoT
workloads with mixed-criticality on to a single platform helps reduce
both development and deployment costs allowing for a more streamlined
system architecture. An example of this is the electronic control unit
(ECU) consolidation in automotive applications. While open source
hypervisor options are available today, none share ACRN's vision of an
open source hypervisor solution optimized for embedded and IoT products.


"ACRN will have a Linux-based service OS and the ability to
simultaneously run multiple types of guest operating systems, providing
a powerful solution for workload consolidation," said Imad Sousou,
corporate vice president and general manager of the Open Source
Technology Center, at Intel(R) Corporation. "This new project delivers a
flexible, lightweight hypervisor, designed to take real-time and
safety-critical concerns into consideration and drive meaningful
innovation for the IoT space."

ACRN will incorporate input from the open source, embedded, and IoT
developer communities and encourages collaboration and code
contributions to the project. Early ACRN project members include
ADLINK(R), Aptiv(R), Intel(R) Corporation, LGE(R), and Neusoft(R)
Corporation. To learn more about the project, visit

SUPPORTING QUOTES

"The lack of open source virtualization solutions for embedded,
real-time, and safety-critical systems has been greatly hindering
consolidation and to some extent the most interesting forms of fog
computing," commented Angelo Corsaro, chief technology officer of ADLINK
Technology Inc. "The release of ACRN as a Linux Foundation project by
Intel will be a game changer as it brings the agility and manageability
of virtualized environments into embedded and real-time systems. This
will be a key enabler toward making the Industrial Internet of Things
happen for real."

"This approach from Intel fits very well within our product roadmap and
is a welcomed approach that will meet our customers' desire to have more
open source reference solutions," said Lee Bauer, vice president,
Mobility Architecture Group of Aptiv. "Aptiv is excited to be a part of
this new project, ACRN, and with it usher in a new era of flexibility
and scalability for our mobility IoT product solutions."

"Because ACRN will allow for faster feasibility checking of ECU
consolidation, it will benefit our growing vehicle components business,"
said Seongpyo Hong, vice president of LG Electronics. "As a result, we
will be able to respond more quickly to OEMs' customized requirements
and will continue to play a key role in contributing to the ACRN
project."

"As Intel's strategic partner, Neusoft is pleased to join Intel in
project ACRN," said Meng Lingjun, vice president of Neusoft Corporation
and the general manager of Neusoft Automotive. "ACRN has landed in
China's automotive electronics industry with practical implementation. I
believe ACRN can meet the development requirements of IoT technology.
We're pleased to work with open source communities and introduce ACRN
into the ecosystem."
