Virtutech, a San-Jose based Virtualized Software Development (VSD) provider, today announced an initiative to accelerate the creation of standards for the VSD industry and to drive mainstream acceptance of VSD throughout the electronic systems business. While continuing its long-standing involvement with Power.org at both the Technical Sub Committees and Marketing Programs level, Virtutech has also joined organizations in its domain-Eclipse.org, OSCI and Spirit Consortium-with the aim of fostering standards and best practices. Virtutech further announced collaboration with GreenSocs to promote Open Standards and community development.
Virtutech intends to leverage its expertise with more than 1,000 successful users accumulated over the course of deploying its Simics platform since 2001 to propose, promote and support best practices, conventions and standards for VSD.
“Virtualized Software Development has the potential to make the same dramatic impact on software development that virtualization has already brought to the data center and business applications. However, the industry needs to stand up and define, promote and drive adoption of virtualization throughout the development community,” said Michel Genard, vice president of marketing at Virtutech. “Virtutech intends to be an agent of change and to actively precipitate the next big virtualization wave.”
