With 30 years of experience building safe and secure embedded systems, Wind River® is well-versed in the hard real-time requirements of industrial manufacturers. The company's flagship product, the operating system VxWorks®, is at the heart of more than 2 billion embedded computing devices around the world, allowing mission-critical and safety-critical systems to operate in extreme environments.
The company's virtualization platform, Wind River Titanium Control, enables manufactures to completely virtualize the operational environment, with zero latency and 99.9999% uptime. Hardware operating on enterprise architecture levels 1–3—distributed control systems (DCSs), programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and so on—now become 100% digital representations, allowing for fast failover and lowering operating expenses (OPEX) dramatically. Titanium Control also uses open standards, meaning maximum flexibility and scalability for manufacturers with no vendor lock-in.
And Wind River Helix™ Device Cloud brings it all together: providing industrial operators with a way to deploy, manage, and update thousands of edge devices remotely via a robust, on-premises, cloud-based Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) platform. Data collection and analysis becomes easier than ever, and facility upgrades and optimization can happen quickly.
Manufacturers finally have a single, centralized, ultra-reliable control system to build on. The era of rip and replace is over.
