Virtualization Expert Group

The AGL Virtualization Expert Group (EG-VIRT) is responsible to design and implement virtualization solutions for AGL. This expert group has been created from a BoF held in the Munich AMM 2016 meeting (slides available here).

Containers, Hypervisors (both based on Virtualization Extensions and TrustZone) and any other virtualization solution for x86/ARM are considered to be of interest for this Expert Group. Mainline AGL support the KVM hypervisor on the Renesas RCar M3 platform).

Today the EG-VIRT expert group is focused on defining the Virtualization platform architecture of AGL. The result of the work of the EG-VIRT group in this direction is this white paper.

For more information about the technical objectives, members involved and target events see the specific section below.


Regular meetings are scheduled on Wednesdays at 14:00 UTC (bi-weekly). To join the discussion, please use the following link:
