Only Embedded Hypervisor Vendor accepted in the highest possible Ranking of the Microsoft® WindowsTM Embedded Partner Program
Ravensburg, Germany - April 10th 2012 - Real-Time Systems GmbH a vendor of embedded Hypervisor technology for x86 announced today that they have been awarded with Gold Status in the Microsoft Windows Embedded Partner Program. Their very close cooperation with Microsoft and alignment with Windows Embedded Product Roadmaps combined with Real-Time Systems' membership in the exclusive Intel® Embedded Alliance Program on the affiliate level enables the company to provide the best possible products and support to their customers utilizing an embedded Hypervisor in their design.
Real-Time Systems has been a long time member of the Windows Embedded Program as an Independent Software Vendor as well as a System Integrator. "After four years as a Silver Partner, we are very honoured that Microsoft now awarded our expertise and success in the market by promoting us to Gold Level" said Gerd Lammers, CEO and President of Real-Time Systems GmbH. "A large percentage of our customers worldwide use Microsoft Windows embedded operating systems and we firmly believe that only through our close relationship with Microsoft and other partners we were able to make our Real-Time Hypervisor as successful as it is".
The company's flagship product the RTS Real-Time Hypervisor, a software product allows customers to partition an Intel x86 multi core platform into virtually independent computers running e.g. a Microsoft operating system as a user interface and separate real-time operating systems in parallel for real-time tasks on the same hardware. Consolidating hardware greatly reduces cost while increasing reliability and reducing power consumption. The hypervisor solution is particularly useful for products in the industrial, medical or transportation markets where many customers rely on a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) for time or mission critical functions while using a different operating system (OS) for other tasks, such as running a human machine interface (HMI). Because the RTS solution does not depend on a host OS, operating systems can start in any sequence, reboot independently and never harm each other.
