Embedded developers can now take advantage of a real-time embedded virtualization technology that can help protect their legacy software investment as they move to new hardware platforms. This gives embedded developers the same benefits as IT organizations that have been running legacy Operating Systems (OSs) and applications on new server platforms for years. This investment is particularly key as hardware platforms shift from single-core to multicore 32- to 64-bit architectures and add new connectivity such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or cellular communications.
The benefits of cloud computing have been readily accepted in the data center and other markets, but can cloud architectures be trusted with classified military data?
Secure virtualization combines traditional desktop OSs and embedded RTOSs in military embedded systems
Microsoft Windows can run on the same system as Linux and RTOS, with each having its own secure partition and running applications at different security classifications. For the next generation of military embedded systems, the combination of LynxSecure and Intel hardware allows the ultimate in flexibility of system and applications while maintaining the highest level of security.
