Speed the delivery of virtualized industrial systems

Configurable, pre-integrated industrial virtualization solution

Developers looking to reduce solution cost and consolidate Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial workloads can do so with the Intel® Industrial Solutions System Consolidation Series. These developer and production kits pre-integrate key virtualization software components onto platforms based on 4th generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors, thus reducing development time for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The kits provide a production-ready, virtualization software stack supporting real-time, embedded, and general-purpose operating systems, which gives equipment suppliers a great deal of flexibility to include IoT gateway, firewall, control, and other applications.

Virtualized, consolidated industrial systems based on the new system consolidation kits should enable industrial and automation control OEMs, engineering firms, and system integrators to:

  • Use multiple partitions on a single computing device to simultaneously run both real-time and general-purpose operating systems
  • Harness development tools to utilize pre-configured partitions as appropriate for the applications
  • Accelerate time to market of high-performance, virtualized industrial systems
  • Install fewer subsystems to reduce complexity, footprint, and energy usage
  • Lower integration and operating costs for customers by reducing the number of devices to manage, test, and secure

The kits, shown in Table 1, support a combination of operating systems that run in virtual machines (VMs) on Wind River* Virtualization Profile for VxWorks*, which is a hypervisor that enables near-native performance. In other words, users can set up the combination of VMs they want. This software flexibility enables equipment suppliers to quickly tailor a solution to satisfy new customer requests and changing market requirements.
