TenAsys Corporation is now shipping eVM for Windows, the first embedded virtualization manager software product to enable different real-time operating systems (RTOSs) to run alongside Windows on the same multicore processor platform without sacrificing determinism, performance or features.
Using eVM for Windows, applications that have been developed for standalone RTOSs (QNX, VxWorks, Windows CE, and numerous others) can now be run on multicore Windows platforms with full native performance. eVM for Windows embedded virtualization technology utilizes hardware-assisted features built into Intel processors to allocate hardware resources and ensure that time-critical I/O processes aren't interrupted, thereby ensuring that systems provide deterministic response to real-time events.
Investments in legacy software are protected by enabling the hosting of legacy RTOSs and application software on their own cores while new features are implemented on other OS environments on other cores.
eVM for Windows is being demonstrated with different RTOSes and Windows at the Embedded World 2010 exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany March 2-4, 2010.
