VT Virtualization

Expand Digital Home Functionality with VT


Challenge

Use Intel® Virtualization Technology in conjunction with other technologies to improve the Digital Home experience. The advent of Intel Virtualization Technology corresponds to another, even more significant hardware transition: multi-core processing. These two technologies complement each other in a variety of ways that can bring outstanding value to users, including users in a Digital Home and entertainment context.

  • Digital Home Security with VT


    Challenge

    Improve security in the Digital Home by means of virtualization. As powerful entertainment PCs take over more functionality in the Digital Home, it will become more important than ever to secure these platforms. This necessity is even more pronounced in those cases where the same PC being used as a Digital Home appliance is being used for other functionality, such as productivity applications.

  • Hide Hardware Complexity


    Challenge

    Hide the complexity of hardware from the operating system. Future microprocessors will need several levels of virtualization. For example, as shown in the figure below, virtualization is needed to hide the complexity of the hardware from the overlying software. The OS kernel and the software should not have to deal with the intricacies of many cores, specialized execution hardware, multiple caches, reconfiguration, and so on. Rather, it should see the processor as one or more unified virtual machines through its global interfaces.

  • Mobile Productivity with VT


    Challenge

    Improve the level of productivity in a technical mobile workforce using virtualization technology. Distinct productivity advantages are achievable by combining the benefits of virtualization with those of mobile computing. Now that multi-core technology has become available for mobile computers, by means of Intel® Centrino® Duo mobile technology, these benefits are even more pronounced.

  • Software Requirements for a VMware* VT Solution


    Challenge

    Prepare the key software elements for a virtualization solution using components from Intel and VMware*. Running multiple applications on a single server increases server efficiency and reduces the number of servers to be managed and maintained. When workloads increase, additional VMs can be quickly created for agile response to changing needs without adding physical servers. Moreover, with VMware technology, IT administrators can move live, running VMs from server to server while maintaining continuous server availability.
