ALAMEDA, Calif. -- December 11, 2012

Wind River®, a world leader in embedded and mobile software, announced that
Fujitsu, a leading Japanese information and communication technology company,
relies on VxWorks® real-time operating system, Wind River Linux and Wind River
Hypervisor for the development of their next generation of ETERNUS RAID disk
storage systems.

As the amount of data and traffic continues to explode across the enterprise,
network storage capacity and connectivity needs have grown. The trend of
multicore processing has also increased software complexity, often equating to
rising costs. Using virtualization, Wind River Hypervisor enabled Fujitsu to
partition their Intel® multicore processor and take advantage of both VxWorks
with its 64-bit computing support and Wind River Linux to create a flexible
high performance storage product delivered on time and on budget. The
combination of Wind River solutions, along with global customer support,
helped Fujitsu reduce costs and provided a scalable architecture for future
expansion.

The Fujitsu line of disk storage systems accommodates for all levels of
businesses, from small to medium sized businesses to large data centers and
virtualized environments that can serve capacity-intensive environments with
tremendous storage density. The new line of RAID disk storage system products
will be available in 2014.

“We needed a flexible and reliable development environment to manage
increasing software complexity resulting from multicore deployment as well as
secure performance. Wind River’s comprehensive portfolio and deep expertise
helped us unlock multicore capabilities, and Fujitsu was able to significantly
shrink the time and cost for development,” said Mr. Shigeo Konno, general
manager of the Storage Systems Division at Fujitsu Limited.

“Having a global leader like Fujitsu relying on a variety of our technologies
speaks to Wind River’s trusted software and expertise,” said Warren Kurisu,
vice president of product marketing at Wind River. “By providing a
comprehensive set of solutions, including the industry leading RTOS, embedded
Linux and virtualization technologies and support, Wind River allows Fujitsu
to streamline the development process and deliver powerful devices capable of
handling the storage needs of today and future networks.”
