Virtualization: Hardware, software
IBM PureSystems are servers with "scale-in" architecture that builds on faster, denser components; the latest generation Intel processors combine with integrated virtualization management and a unique networking design. National Instruments offers virtualization technology called NI Real-Time Hypervisor that enables engineers to run multiple operating systems side-by-side on the same computer.
IBM PureSystems include built-in expertise, integration by design, and a simplified experience, the company explained. These servers have a "scale-in" architecture that builds on faster, denser components, and the latest generation Intel processors combine with integrated virtualization management and a unique networking design.
An IBM PureFlex server was part of the keynote presentation at NIWeek 2013. National Instruments offers virtualization technology that enables engineers to run multiple operating systems side-by-side on the same computer. This is useful for automation, control, and many other high-performance applications, as virtualization can combine real-time process and a user interface on one computer.
Software from National Instruments, called NI Real-Time Hypervisor, takes advantage of the capabilities of multicore processors by running deterministic NI LabVIEW Real-Time applications while running Microsoft Windows or Red Hat Enterprise Linux, for instance, bringing higher reliability to mission-critical applications.
