Ron Fredericks writes: I just read the press release on Wind River‘s Hypervisor and Mark Hermeling‘s blog on the subject of multi-core virtualization.
Wind River gets a second chance on connecting smart devices into the enterprise world.
One of their previous attempts was Wind’s office political initiative into Embedded BSD/OS. I thought the BSD OS play was great for Wind River if only they connected their robust multi-core OS from the smart device into the enterpise. Now I see and hope that Wind River has learned from this prior effort and is off to a second chance.
The Wind River Hypervisor
So there are a few different kinds of hypervisor: here is a link to a short discription of the server OS, versus their type 1 and 2 hypervisors. Follow Wind River to learn more about their vision for an embedded system hypervisor.
Now of course the cloud is more tied to the embedded system world than ever. Just look at UC Berkeley‘s upcoming annual technology day called BEARS, where CAL’s EE and CS researchers share with the technology industry.
I sure hope Wind River will be attending!
This year’s 2010 Berkeley EECS Annual Research Symposium event is called: From Clouds to Sensors – A Berkeley View

Ron has been in the enterprise, embedded systems, and smartphone technical marketing and partner development for the past 15+ years. Contact him to learn more about how relationship marketing can be used to connect the embedded systems hypervisor to the enterprise clouds with effecient use of industry and university partnerships.
