This project included the development of a comprehensive virtualization solution for MIPS processor based embedded systems. The designed hypervisor hosted multiple VMs running Linux operating systems. The focus was on the high end embedded systems to realize the same benefits as that of X86 system virtualization open source Type 2 hypervisor for MIPS64 Linux based system which can run multiple virtual machines concurrently such that hypervisor itself and its virtual machines judiciously use host compute cores for their performance benefits.
