Linux Foundation Gains VirtualLogix, Real-Time Virtualization

VirtualLogix(TM), Inc., the Real-Time Virtualization(TM) company, announced that it has joined the Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux. By joining the Linux Foundation, VirtualLogix brings its real-time virtualization expertise to the organization, enabling device manufacturers to add the rich functionality of Linux into network infrastructure and mobile handset applications, while reducing bill of materials.

“We are pleased to have VirtualLogix as an active member of the organization,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director of The Linux Foundation. “With the company’s long-standing, proven experience in real-time virtualization software, we look forward to VirtualLogix’s technical contributions in our Carrier Grade Linux and Mobile Linux Initiative working groups.”

VirtualLogix will contribute its industry knowledge to the Linux Foundation’s Carrier Grade Linux and Mobile Linux Initiative working groups. The company’s real-time virtualization software enables multiple operating systems to run securely and simultaneously on the same single or multi-core processor, while maintaining hard real-time and high throughput requirements. VirtualLogix’s technology provides developers with the ability to share hardware resources and combine a real-time operating system (RTOS) with a rich OS, such as Linux. System designers can add more functionality quickly and with reduced costs. VLX also provides a range of performance, fault tolerance and security options for a wide variety of embedded applications.

“Virtualization is moving beyond enterprises to embedded devices, and VirtualLogix is looking forward to working with the Linux Foundation to speed the adoption of Linux into these applications,” said Michel Gien, executive vice president of corporate strategy, VirtualLogix. “Our real-time virtualization software enables Linux to run securely along side existing real-time operating systems and applications, thereby leveraging existing software investments, eliminating porting efforts, and creating more robust software architectures.”
