During the most recent episode of InformationWeek's Valley View--our monthly live Web TV series--ARM's lead mobile strategist, James Bruce, talked about another compelling innovation, involving virtualization. That is, the ability to create virtualized environments on a smartphone, where perhaps the more consumer-oriented applications and data reside in one virtual machine, and enterprise apps and data in another, thereby creating a more secure divide between the worlds of work and play.
ARM, Bruce said, is putting virtualization in hardware. He discusses why this is necessary, and why the impact (to performance and cost) will be negligible. Watch the whiteboard session in the video embedded below.
