Wind River Targets Open Virtualization Profile for NFV

Wind River is developing Open Virtualization Profile software for implementing high performance, open-source, real-time kernel virtualization in next generation telecommunications equipment as well as network functions virtualization (NFV) and cloud environments.


Open Virtualization Profile is a high value add-on software profile for Wind River Linux developed by optimizing open source Kernel-Based Virtual Machine (KVM) technology. This allows the deployment of network services on virtual machines without the performance loss associated with using traditional, propriety IT-like virtualization products.

Key features include:
  • Real-time high performance; extremely low latency measuring as low as under 3 microseconds
  • Flexible provisioning of virtual machines
  • Live migration of virtual machines
  • CPU isolation
  • Open source-based; compatible with frameworks such as the Yocto Project™, oVirt and others
  • Broad support for a variety of guest operating systems

The first release is expected in Q3 2013.

"As networks are pushed to their limits, virtualization is becoming an increasingly important approach. Operators are looking toward NFV to support the transition to scalable platforms that enable flexible deployment of network services," said Jim Douglas, senior vice president of marketing at Wind River. "With Wind River Open Virtualization Profile, we are delivering a real-time virtualization solution to support the rigorous SLAs of a carrier network and enable them to gain the flexibility, scalability, and cost and energy benefits cloud data centers already enjoy."
