Transforming computing at the edge: continuing the StarlingX journey

Transforming computing at the edge: continuing the StarlingX journey
StarlingX is a relatively new open source project - it was announced in May of 2018 and things have changed, grown and evolved very quickly. It is a very different project now than when we started for sure. Let's review the journey we've taken to get to the recent StarlingX 2.0 release. Guest blog written by Ian Jolliffe, Wind River.

Virtualisation benefits: virtualisation for embedded systems

Virtualisation benefits: virtualisation for embedded systems
The latest connected technology trends are forcing old, closed, and purpose-built embedded systems to be modified or replaced. Older systems are giving way to new fluid, software-defined architectures. The critical component to this transition is virtualisation, which has been used in enterprise IT for years but is just making its way into the embedded systems world. It’s providing a way to improve support and modernisation for legacy systems, while also providing a platform to enable further evolution with the ability to run essentially any embedded system, old or new.

Securing the edge with StarlingX

Securing the edge with StarlingX
Security on the edge is crucial. Learn more about how the StarlingX 2.0 release helps addressing this challenge. As we drive compute to the edge of the network many things change and become more interesting and new problems need to be solved. Guest blog written by Ian Joliffe, Wind River.

Why the Thomas Cook collapse links to system desegregation

Why the Thomas Cook collapse links to system desegregation
It’s hard to imagine how a strong brand like global travel group Thomas Cook, in business since 1841, could go south so quickly.  Its value proposition was proven and real, one-stop-shopping, all-inclusive vacations, great customer support. What happened? A few things actually. First, thanks to the internet and social network, people no longer need assistance from a travel agency to get ideas and deals for their vacations.  Guest blog written by Michel Genard, Wind River.

Seven cool things about the new VxWorks

Seven cool things about the new VxWorks
Have you checked out the latest version of VxWorks? You really should. Wind River have announced that it is blazing trails to make the world’s leading real-time operating system (RTOS) even greater than before. Not only does the new VxWorks stay true to its four key pillars of security, safety, reliability, and certifiability, but it now includes a lot of cool features and capabilities that will appeal to software developers, both seasoned and new to the world of embedded.

VxWorks cert edition is now IEC 62304 compliant

VxWorks cert edition is now IEC 62304 compliant
VxWorks has been used in the medical device industry since the early days. The market leading safe, secure and reliable RTOS (real-time operating system) can be found in surgical robots, infusion pumps, dialysis machines, pace maker programmers, assisted ventilators, etc. When critical Class III devices are being developed, and lives are at stake, medical device manufacturers have turned to Wind River.  Guest blog written by Davide Ricci, Wind River.

Building a path to DevOps through simulation

Building a path to DevOps through simulation
In an increasingly technical world, computer science knowledge comes at a premium, and strong programmers have become coveted members of the workforce. The reason why is simple: programming is important, but programming is hard. It requires a lot of skills, from the ability to creatively address problems to being able to organise your thoughts in a way that makes sense to a computer. Guest blog written by Ranjan Sikand, Wind River intern.

Why are containers a benefit for Industrial IoT?

Why are containers a benefit for Industrial IoT?
Virtual machines and containers have been well-accepted by enterprise IT, but they are now moving into non-IT areas, such as industrial IoT edge devices. Both are tools that developers and system management use to take separate single applications or systems and consolidate multiple applications on to a single compute platform or server to optimise compute resources and save IT/OT costs.  Guest blog written by Ranjan Sikand, Wind River Intern.

Embedded systems: The evolution of embedded system design

Embedded systems: The evolution of embedded system design
Embedded systems design is evolving as businesses are under pressure to innovate faster than ever before. Legacy systems that were once purpose-built must be modernised or give way to new fluid and connected systems. Of course, the need for this transition didn’t happen overnight. Let’s review the history of embedded systems and how things have changed to drive this evolution. Guest blog written by Michel Genard, Wind River.

Linux reflections from a Wind River intern

Linux reflections from a Wind River intern
This summer, a marketing intern by the name of Ranjan Sikand proved that Wind River Linux truly is accessible for use by all. That being said, when the opportunity arose for an intern to work with the leading free open source Linux in the embedded industry, it made perfect sense that of the team of four interns, Ranjan was the one for the job.

VxWorks now has a pet snake

VxWorks now has a pet snake
I guess this was an easy one: Snake… Python… Hmmm… Part 1: Just to make sure, the Python I am referring to is the simple and easy to learn programming language with the nice blue/yellow logo. Yes: Python is exciting. While my personal view did not come into play when I pulled the trigger on this investment, I do like Python a lot. I discovered it with Blender years ago and wrote my first Python program to export a scene so I could process it in my raytracer, getting my first cooler than a cube image, (shown below).

Virtualisation for embedded systems

Virtualisation for embedded systems
New technological trends are forcing a change in the world of embedded systems. Legacy architectures must give way to a more fluid, software-defined, and connected approach. While virtualisation has been a common practice in enterprise IT for years, it is just making its way into the embedded systems market. A robust virtualisation solution will enable this transition and offer a way to run any embedded system, old or new, while supporting the security, safety, reliability, and certification requirements of modern embedded systems.

Apollo 11: A future in space, thanks to our past

Apollo 11: A future in space, thanks to our past
A chorus of alarms serenaded the nervous astronauts as the Eagle lunar module descended toward the moon’s surface. The tension was palpable, and the shrill ringing only added to their worries.  Guest blog written by Ranjan Sikand, Wind River Intern.

Where to start with auto high performance compute gateway?

Where to start with auto high performance compute gateway?
There are 3 major trends in the automotive industry that demands higher performance compute in the car. The next generation vehicle requires CAE (Connectivity, Automation and Electrification). Consider the vehicle a kind of consumer device with the level of connectivity and security requirements of networking equipment as well as the functional safety and reliability requirements of industrial equipment.

Easier installation, operations and maintenance at the Edge

Easier installation, operations and maintenance at the Edge
The network edge may look like the land of opportunity for telcos seeking fertile ground to grow new revenue-generating services. For their network operations managers, however, ensuring the delivery of reliable services across disparate edge architectures and geographically dispersed sites of varying sizes could well look like a nightmare scenario. Indeed, operational complexity is one of the biggest challenges of edge cloud deployments. Guest blog written by Jeff Gowan, Wind River.
