ITTIA, a leading provider of high performance database and connectivity products for embedded systems and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, today announced its partnership with Wind River and the availability of ITTIA DB SQL on VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS). As manufacturers begin to build intelligent devices that collect, store, and analyse data in a secure local database, they seek technologies that are fully verified. By integrating an embedded database library with an RTOS, ITTIA provides a platform for device manufacturers to scale onto a wide range of embedded systems and minimise development time and cost.
VxWorks, the industry’s leading RTOS, delivers a safe and secure environment for mission-critical products. VxWorks virtualisation capabilities reduce cost and facilitate certification by separating critical and non-critical components without additional hardware. ITTIA DB SQL, the leading embedded database known for ease of use in data management and connectivity. With advanced algorithms for relational storage, ITTIA DB SQL provides support for complex queries that efficiently analyse device-local data with industry-standard SQL.
With ITTIA DB SQL and VxWorks, modern devices are empowered to collect and store data securely, making information available for both local processing and remote analysis. Devices that make up the Internet of Things may even communicate with each other directly, retrieving data and running SQL queries over a local network. With ITTIA DB SQL’s lightweight data server, any VxWorks application can securely and efficiently share data stored on local flash media. In addition, with support for high availability, ITTIA DB SQL protects and replicates critical data by sharing it securely across storage media or communication networks.
Today’s embedded systems are increasingly reliant on many software components that must be integrated in a flexible way. ITTIA DB SQL and VxWorks both offer build configuration options to eliminate unused component! s and tailor the software environment for the exact requirements of each application.
“ITTIA’s powerful database software offers edge devices the means to produce, collect, store, manage and locally analyse sensor data all in one place,” said Sasan Montaseri, president and founder of ITTIA. “Whether you are building industrial automation software, enabling medical devices to make critical decisions from a patient log, or adding value to driverless vehicles, the combination of ITTIA DB SQL and VxWorks provides a full-featured development platform.”
“As the IoT continues to become more of a reality and changes the landscape of security, data management and sharing for connected devices, these platforms together provide an ecosystem that simplifies the integration required for a high level of reliability and risk management,” said Michel Genard, vice president and general manager of operating system platforms at Wind River. “Manufactures can now build device software faster, with lower cost and greater reliability. Wind River’s partnership with ITTIA assists customers with ease of integration, greater functionality, and standards for building state-of-the-art embedded systems and IoT devices.”
