VirtualLogix today announced the release of its VLX virtualization software solution for the Intel Atom processor Z530 platform for embedded applications. VLX enables faster, more secure integration of the Intel platform into connected embedded device designs such as in-vehicle infotainment systems and industrial automation and control applications.Support of the Intel Atom processor Z530 on VLX software will enable Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to:
- Leverage the optimized low power technology and performance advancements of the processor without the operational and cost constraints associated with migration;
- Convert and converge multiple OS environments on a common platform, reducing Bill of Materials;
- Securely isolate the mission-critical execution domains from the less trustworthy ones; and
- Innovate while meeting tight time-to-market deadlines, maintaining a flexible and scalable infrastructure that allows them to continue to evolve during this lifecycle without sacrificing performance or trust.
With the promise of a rapidly expanding ecosystem of mobile and connected applications once only available on the desktop, a number of fast-growing market segments are adopting embedded Internet devices. Viewing this market as an opportunity of greater than $10 billion by 2011, Intel predicts that an additional 15 billion devices will connect to the Internet by 2015.
