Feedback form is now closed.
With the grown interest in virtualization from big players around the world there are more and more companies choose ARM SoCs as their target platform for running server environments. It is also known that majority of such SoCs come with broad coprocessors available on the die, e.g. GPU, DSP, security etc. But at the moment the only way to speed up guests with these is either using a para-virtualized approach or making that HW dedicated to a specific guest.
Shared coprocessor framework for Xen aims to allow all guest OSes to benefit from this companion HW with ease while running unmodified software and/or firmware on guest side. You don’t need to worry about setting up IO ranges, interrupts, scheduling etc.: it is all covered, making support of new shared HW way faster.
As an example of the shared coprocessor framework usage a virtualized GPU will be shown.
