Wind River, a global company delivering software for the Internet of Things (IoT), has introduced an app store for its VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS). Wind River Marketplace helps customers find and evaluate add-on solutions in order to enhance their VxWorks deployment with best-of-breed solutions from the Wind River partner ecosystem.
Tested and validated by Wind River for seamless interoperability with VxWorks, the solutions found in Wind River Marketplace enrich the VxWorks operating environment with categories of packages ranging from safety, security, and storage to connectivity, graphics, and development tools. Customer benefits include simplified ‘try-before-buy’ options, a modern app store experience, and easy installation and evaluation of complementary software. Via Marketplace, Wind River also houses an extensive range of board support packages (BSPs) in the embedded software industry to aid with board bring-up and design.
“With the synergy and validation already achieved for Wind River Marketplace products, customers get almost immediate access to embedded technologies to easily enhance the operating environment and accelerate market deployment,” said Dinyar Dastoor, vice president and general manager of operating system platforms. “Marketplace creates a robust ecosystem offering for our customers, and provides our partners with a unique opportunity to showcase their products and distribute evaluation versions to our vast customer base.”
VxWorks delivers deterministic performance and sets the standard for a scalable, future-proof, safe, and secure operating environment for connected devices in the IoT.
