Redbend Type-1 Virtualization enables multiple operating systems to run on the same hardware. These can be operating systems that are used by a user, such as in the case of the Dual Persona solution and Head Unit Virtualization or can be operating systems that are running in the background to isolate specific device functionality, such as a secure file system or securely management domain.
Domain Isolation guarantees that the level of isolation between each operating system (OS) is of the highest priority. This is especially important in the case of one OS being open source and the other being a proprietary OS or one being an open/connected OS and the other being with a mission critical (or security sensitive) OS. Redbend achieves domain isolation with dedicated software interfaces and utilizing ARM Cortex-A15 Virtualization Extensions (VE).
The Virtualization Orchestrator is in charge for user experience in a virtualized solution. It resides in a dedicated isolated domain and manages the interactions between the virtual domains, specifically the application notifications such as new messages, new email, etc. This product component also manages the call handling and domain switching mechanism.
Redbend virtualization is not limited to the processing unit and memory as most devices have additional dedicated peripheral hardware such as Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, camera, etc. These devices have accompanying drivers that are also virtualized, in order to allow access by all the isolated domains on a single device. Red Bend’s Driver Virtualization comes with out-of-the-box support for a large variety of peripherals, reducing integration time and improving performance.
The Redbend hypervisor uses Type-1 virtualization a.k.a. bare-metal virtualization to isolate the operating systems from the hardware resources. The hypervisor serves as the scheduler to run multiple operating systems simultaneously and allocate the hardware resources according to the OS needs and predefined priorities.
