Title: MEMORY CONTROLLER FOR PROVIDING A PLURALITY OF DEFINED AREAS OF A MASS STORAGE MEDIUM AS INDEPENDENT MASS MEMORIES TO A MASTER OPERATING SYSTEM CORE FOR EXCLUSIVE PROVISION TO VIRTUAL MACHINES
Abstract:
A computer system (100) comprises at least one processor (CPU), a first mass memory (MS1) and a second mass memory (MS2). The computer system (100) is set up to implement a master operating system core (MBS) as well as a first operating system core (BS1) and at least one second operating system core (BS2) on the processor (CPU) under the control of the master operating system core (MBS). The memory controller (CTL) is set up to provide the master operating system core (MBS) with defined areas of a mass storage medium (FLSH) as a first mass memory and at least one second mass memory which are each independent of one another and to control mapping of the first mass memory and of the at least one second mass memory to the defined areas of the mass storage medium (FLSH). The master operating system core (MBS) is set up to allow the first operating system core (BS1) and the at least one second operating system core (BS2) to have exclusive access to at least one of the mass memories provided in each case.
