The traditional Open Source hypervisors (e.g. KVM, Xen), are not good a fit for certain use cases outside the mainstream Datacenter. The Jailhouse hypervisor aims to offer a system partitioning solution, where hardware resources can be safely isolated into distinct cells. Enabling the hard partitioning of the system, allows to tackle safety critical Applications, industrial Control, and real time; Jailhouse is also interesting for the implementation of secure Data planes on isolated cells, while maintaining performance guarantees. In this presentation, Antonios Motakis will introduce the ARMv8 port of the Jailhouse hypervisor, with build and usage examples. A selection of the most interesting challenges met during the porting activity will be discussed, providing insight on both the design of the hypervisor and the virtualization support on ARMv8.
