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.

HoskeAn 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.
