Arm Enterprise Virtualization with Arm System... (WhitePaper).

Arm Enterprise Virtualization with Arm System IP, backplane integration and performance

Virtualization has become ubiquitous across the infrastructure market, increasing efficiency and security, boosting productivity and reducing operating costs. However, system performance remains crucial to ensuring a virtualized environment does not affect the end user’s experience. Performance within this environment depends on a number of factors such as: transaction bandwidth, latencies and prioritization, hypervisor and memory address translation overhead, and the number of simultaneously executing contexts. 
This white paper describes Arm’s approach to enabling a scalable high-performance virtualization solution for infrastructure platforms.
