Virtualization and the Internet of Things

Initial devices for the Internet of Things (IoT) were manufactured with a built-in business logic. Intended to perform one fixed function, they were deployed for specific tasks, such as controlling industrial equipment, electricity generation, power plants, or trains. Today, however, devices are shipped comparatively bare, and their functionality is then provisioned through the cloud. Embedded virtualization provides valuable flexibility for IoT, the benefits of consolidation, and security from the ground up.
