Virtualization deployment in I-IoT domain is associated with many potential benefits. However, to achieve benefits from virtualization, which is nowadays a well-known technology, it is necessary to verify usability of virtualization platforms in context of I-IoT. In this article, we present a quantitative comparison of two leading open-source hypervisors, XEN and KVM, focusing on throughput and latency, which are key factors from I-IoT point of view. This paper analyzes the methodology for calculating throughput and latency in an computing device that hosts multiple I-IoT subsystems.
