High-Level Design Guides

The ACRN Hypervisor acts as a host with full control of the processor(s) and the hardware (physical memory, interrupt management and I/O). It provides the User OS with an abstraction of a virtual platform, allowing the guest to behave as if were executing directly on a logical processor.

These chapters describe the ACRN architecture, high-level design, background, and motivation for specific areas within the ACRN hypervisor system.
