Latest version of Linux continues development of IoT devices

Dinyar Dastoor, vice president and general manager of operating system platforms at Wind River

Wind River has introduced the latest version of Wind River Linux. Wind River Linux 8 is said to bring together the flexibility and interoperability of open source along with improved user experience and scalability for addressing the opportunities and challenges of IoT.

The latest version of Wind River Linux is claimed to deliver a reduction in set-up and installation time. It uses the latest kernel and toolchain from the Yocto Project 2.0 release, Linux kernel 4.1, and GNU toolchain 5.2. Wind River Linux 8 also features hardware support for Intel, ARM, MIPS, and PowerPC architecture.

Wind River Linux 8 will serve as the baseline for existing technology profiles, including Carrier Grade Profile for Wind River Linux, Security Profile for Wind River Linux, and the newly enhanced Open Virtualisation profile for building and deploying a cloud operating system. The new features enable cloud services and high-performance computing capabilities to integrate a compute node to a number of frameworks or infrastructure providers.

“Wind River Linux allows customers to extract vast amounts of business intelligence and value from their data, and supports devices of all sizes, architectures, and industries—from general purpose and high-performing real-time devices to carrier grade, virtualisation, and highly secure military applications,” said Dinyar Dastoor, vice president and general manager of operating system platforms at Wind River. “With the latest version of Wind River Linux and our updated Open Virtualisation profile, we are delivering a versatile and robust Linux offering to the market that is ideally suited for the development of IoT devices.”
