Cross-OS Hypervisors for the New-age Technology Scenario Growth in technology tends to bring in demands from end-users and customers for new applications and embedded software that can enable them to extend the life cycle of products, even in wake of new hardware and operating systems. While attributes like speed and security of data offers a competitive edge, features such as interoperability of the software will ensure that enterprises can make use of the legacy applications irrespective of being updated on the IT front. Cross-platform is a term that refers to multiple types of software, application programs and operating systems. Nevertheless, while today's IT landscape has given the business world embedded systems along with a number of software and concepts that can inter-operate on various technology enabled platforms, innovations in technology still challenges the embedded developers with legacy products and new OS development. The embedded developers thus depend on hypervisors to help them move to new application platforms. However, in the wake of continued product developments, the hypervisor solutions used should be able to streamline and enable application interoperability and software re-use. The present day developers therefore depend on Cross-OS hypervisors to help them overcome the limitations of the current generation. Cross-OS hypervisor is a cost-effective next-generation hypervisor that not only eliminates the need for multiple operating systems by providing the OS functionalities required by the applications, but also ensures increased performance. It provides various virtualization interfaces which help developers to run POSIX/Linux, micro-IRON, Windows, VxWorks, Nucleus and pSOS embedded applications either indigenous or united on a target OS platform. While the new-age hypervisor's code generator customizes and builds virtualization interface package for specific applications and target environments, the interfaces are also linked for better optimization of target OS. The applications can further share resources and communicate using these virtualization interfaces thereby by passing hardware devices or network interface layers of the host environment. The leading service providers of embedded software re-usability solutions have designed cross- OS hypervisors that will offer a number of advantages such as:  Reduction in licensing costs for operating systems, tools and middle ware.  Reduction in the requirements of memory, disk space and OS resources.  Using native OS tools and functioning indigenous has led to increased performance.  Reduction in BSP with use of device driver and tools for one OS. Made up of an Application Common Operating Environment (AppCOE), Library Package

Generator, Optimized Target Code Generator, OS Simulator and Platform Profiler, the cross-OS hypervisor benefits enterprises by eliminating overheads associated with OS development. Further, this helps applications to communicate between each other when running as different process/modules. Moreover, while this allows host applications to be either independent or interdependent multiple applications running from a single core, it also allows enterprises to add real-time features on any General Purpose Operating Systems.
