@mclaus: The hypervisor is usually responsible for multiplexing requests from multiple VMs to the single physical instance of the hardware. This is very important for things like I/O mapped access to PCI bus where an access actually requires two transactions.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
