SAN FRANCISCO Virtual infrastructure software provider Jaluna Inc. has re-branded itself as VirtualLogix Inc. and announced the expansion of its offerings in three vertical marketsdigital multimedia, mobile handsets and network infrastructure.
VirtualLogix (Sunnyvale, Calif.) rolled out a new product lineVLX for Network Infrastructuredesigned to enable VirtualLogix and Intel customers to migrate from single-core to multi-core processors, such as Intel's latest Core2 Duo E6400 and T7400 processors. According to VirtualLogix, VLX for Network Infrastructure enables seamless migration from single-core to multi-core processors, allowing customers to run commercial or proprietary real-time operating systems (RTOS) and Linux simultaneously on the same multi-core processor.
For the mobile handset market, VirtualLogix rolled out VLX for Mobile Handsets version 3.0. According to the company, the tool provides enhanced security features to protect phone services from potential corruptions that may be present in an open operating system, such as Linux. Among other things, the upgrades specifically address malware concerns, according to the company.
"Due to the ability to reduce cost and speed time-to-market, there is a rapidly growing trend towards virtualization," said John Humphreys of IDC, in a statement issued by VirtualLogix. "However, because of the need for real-time and high throughput processing, this momentum is only beginning to translate to the embedded market. VirtualLogix is helping to speed the growth of virtualization within the real-time segment."
VirtualLogix is a onetime spinoff from Sun Microsystems Inc. that emerged in 2003 under the Jaluna name.
"Our customers are looking for market-specific, scalable solutions that help accelerate their transition to next generation hardware and software platforms," said Peter Richards, VirtualLogix CEO. "VirtualLogix responded by developing vertical market product solutions that are aligned with our customers' on-going business needs."
