Linux Foundation, Intel launch open source IoT hypervisor

NEWSBYTE: The Linux Foundation has unveiled plans for a new open source project to provide streamlined embedded hypervisors for IoT devices.

Called Acrn, the project has been assisted by Intel, which contributed code and engineering. The main thrust of the project is to create small, flexible virtual machines.

ACRN comprises two main components: the hypervisor and its device model, complete with I/O mediators. The Linux-based hypervisor can run many ‘guest’ operating systems at the same time.

The Foundation said that developers would benefit from ACRN’s small, real-time footprint, which is flexible enough to accommodate different use cases and takes into account safety-critical workloads.

It added that by consolidating a diverse set of IoT workloads with mixed criticality onto a single platform would help reduce development and deployment costs, enabling a more streamlined system architecture.

“ACRN will have a Linux-based service OS and the ability to simultaneously run multiple types of guest operating systems, providing a powerful solution for workload consolidation,” said Imad Sousou, corporate VP and general manager of Intel’s Open Source Technology Center.

“This new project delivers a flexible, lightweight hypervisor, designed to take real-time and safety-critical concerns into consideration and drive meaningful innovation for the IoT space.”

Safety-critical systems

Angelo Corsaro, CTO of edge computing specialist Adlink Technology, said that the lack of open source virtualisation solutions for embedded, real-time, safety-critical systems has greatly hindered consolidation, along with the most interesting forms of fog computing.

“The release of ACRN as a Linux Foundation project by Intel will be a game changer, as it brings the agility and manageability of virtualised environments into embedded and real-time systems. This will be a key enabler toward making the Industrial Internet of Things happen for real,” he said.

Internet of Business says

It’s good news that ACRN will incorporate input from the open source, embedded, and IoT developer communities. Meanwhile, the Linux Foundation has said it will encourage collaboration and code contributions to the project – yet more evidence that the IoT is all about collaboration, at every stage of connected technology and data programmes.

Signal expands into the Signal Foundation with $50M from WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton

The Best Guide To Selling Your Old Phones With High Profit

 Perhaps the most surprising thing I learned about Signal when I spoke with Moxie Marlinspike, the app’s creator, last year at Disrupt, was that it was essentially running on a shoestring budget. A tool used by millions and feared by governments worldwide, barely getting by! But $ 50M from WhatsApp founder Brian Acton should help secure the app’s future. Read More

The encrypted messaging app Signal has become quite popular with millions of downloads on iOS and Android, and its underlying technology has been integrated with the chat platforms used by billions of people. Signal has done all this with only a handful of developers. Now, Signal is growing into the Signal Foundation. With $ 50 million in initial funding, this nonprofit will continue building on Signal’s success to support private communication.

Signal uses end-to-end encryption, so your messages and images are safe from prying eyes.

Code.org gets $12 million in funding from the Gates Foundation and others

Code.org is getting $ 12 million in philanthropic funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and other donors like auditor PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers), as first reported by the Seattle Times. The organization also announced in a Medium post that it has reached ten million girls with student accounts on its platform.

The Code.org nonprofit trains teachers on how to teach computer science lessons to students from kindergarten through 12th grade. It also hosts Hour of Code activities for students to learn coding basics. This year’s Computer Science Education Week starts today and there are over 122,000 Hour of Code global events registered to happen throughout the week.

Bill Gates has been involved in Code.org since 2013, when he…

How Apple Watch laid the foundation for iPhone X

Article Image

With a vibrant, full-faced OLED screen sporting handsomely-rounded corners edged in polished stainless steel, passive biometrics that "just work" to authenticate you without conscious effort, buttery smooth swipe navigation for multitasking and a simple side control to invoke Siri and Apple Pay, iPhone X is nothing like other phones. But it’s exactly like Apple Watch, which began paving the way for a generational iPhone leap back in 2014 at its introduction next to the more basic styling of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Linux Foundation Launches Open Data Licensing Agreements

The Linux Foundation on Monday introduced the Community Data License Agreement, a new framework for sharing large sets of data required for research, collaborative learning and other purposes. CDLAs will allow both individuals and groups to share data sets in the same way they share open source software code, the foundation said. “As systems require data to learn and evolve, no one organization can build, maintain and source all data required,” noted Mike Dolan, VP of strategic programs at The Linux Foundation.
