Designed for Real-Time Performance—From the Ground Up

We designed Wind River® Hypervisor to facilitate the consolidation of both real-time performance and feature-rich applications on the same multi-core platform to help you meet aggressive hardware constraints for size, weight, power, and cost.

Small Footprint

Hypervisor is small; it can be compiled down to 75KB.


Priority-based scheduling provides deterministic behavior.

Configuration Options

Hypervisor is configurable, customizable, and highly optimized to meet real-time requirements. It allows for partitioning or virtualization to provide direct device access and optimal performance.

A Pure Hypervisor

Hypervisor is not an operating system with virtualization additions; it is a pure hypervisor architected from scratch for multi-core processors, so it delivers more control with less overhead.

Real-Time Pedigree

Wind River knows real-time. Hypervisor builds on our history of real-time expertise with the world's No. 1 RTOS, VxWorks®, VxWorks 653, and VxWorks Cert.
