Intel and Citrix working on bare metal hypervisor

Posted on Wednesday, January 21 2009 @ 21:55:42 CET by

FUD Zilla reports Citrix is getting help from Intel to develop a bare metal hypervisor for client PCs, this type of hypervisor runs separately of the operating system and will achieve better performance and improved security.
Most hypervisors for the client today are "Type 2", which are installed on a PC's host OS. A bare metal hypervisor is installed with the firmware beneath the OS, directly on the computer's "bare metal."

If the new hypervisor works, and Citrix is working with Intel to make sure it does, then it will help the use of desktop virtualisation by overcoming some of the technology's shortcomings.

It should be available in the second half of the year with the first release of a new product code-named Project Independence, which Citrix says will make it easier to create and centrally manage virtual desktop images for PCs used in the workplace.
