Working on ExaNoDe and ExaNeSt projects at Virtual Open Systems2017-04-01
Since April 1st, 2017, I joined Virtual Open Systems SME, in Grenoble, France.
Virtual Open Systems is an innovative, agile and dynamic start-up company operating in linux, android, SMP virtualization and cloud computing software solutions. The company delivers most efficient software architectures products and services for heterogeneous embedded multi-core platforms that increase value to customers, helps them lower costs and reduce time to market while improving control, security and meeting new business requirements. The company’s core business is on virtualization solutions and virtualization custom extensions for complex heterogeneous multi-core SoC spanning from embedded to HPC, including the exascale. Our team consists of talented engineers with strong technical skills on KVM virtualization and Linux.
My work is focused on ExaNoDe and ExaNeSt, two European collaborative projects aiming at investigating high-performance, heterogeneous System-on-a-Chip (SoC) towards Exascale computing.
In these projects, Virtual Open Systems is responsible for the Qemu virtualization layer, and in particular the creation of VM snapshots and checkpoints, as well as the virtualization of compute accelerators.
