As a complement to the discussion around updates and patches as im- portant ingredients in maintaining cybersecurity, particularly on systems out in the field, many Wind River solutions have adopted container tech- nology. VxWorks, the industry standard for a secure, embedded real-time operating system (RTOS), recently gained support for containers; and Wind River Linux has offered container support for several years. Wind River Linux, Wind River Simics ® , Wind River Studio, and the VxWorks real-time OS have been used in industrial environments across a broad range of sectors, including automotive, energy, aerospace, medical, and manufacturing. These components frequently save time in meeting certification requirements, when used in combination as part of platform solutions or infrastructure elements. Instead of hav- ing to separately achieve testing and certification for each operating system, virtualization application, processor, or storage system, system architects and developers can build packaged solutions that streamline and simplify the overall certification process by using components that have certifications. Support for container technology makes it easier to keep systems up-to-date for security and efficiency. To learn more, visit Wind River at www.windriver.com.
