Phoenix: Bios-level virtualization is closest to hardware!

"There's a battle going on for the pole position on the physical system," said Pete Lindstrom, Burton Group senior analyst. "The idea here is you want to be first and at lowest level for some level of control. On the client, you can make things more secure through virtualisation, and since Phoenix can launch its hypervisor before everything else, it appears to have that pole position."

Phoenix envisions up to 20 light apps running inside the BIOS, enabled by its HyperCore hypervisor. You can check your email, browse the Web or launch a media player without burning through your battery life. Phoenix is banking on software vendors seeing the market potential and developing HyperSpace-friendly offerings. Security apps, such as your antivirus product of choice, resistant to compromise and getting updates before malware gets a shot at your laptop, could be among the those running on HyperSpace.
