MontaVista Software, LLC Key Developments

MontaVista Software Delivers Open Source Platform Ideal for 5G Carrier Grade Telecom Infrastructure, NFV Applications and Embedded Internet of Things Devices

MontaVista Software, LLC announced MontaVista Carrier Grade eXpress (CGX), the next generation platform for embedded Internet of Things (IoT) devices, 5G carrier grade telecom infrastructure, and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solutions. MontaVista Linux CGX, delivers carrier grade Linux reliability, security, and serviceability that is highly configurable and flexible. CGX meets the demands of the interconnected intelligent devices, providing application portability, dynamic configuration, field maintenance, and real-time performance in a single platform. As a fully integrated, pre-tested environment, MontaVista CGX offers a robust out of box experience for development teams. Developers can now choose CGX to achieve rapid time to market while leveraging the flexibility of a true open source development platform. CGX will incorporate emerging standards at a yearly cadence, aligning with the latest Yocto revisions. MontaVista CGX is packaged as a base platform (CGX Foundation) equipped with a core feature set needed to produce a high quality embedded product. For market specific requirements, MontaVista will offer additional technology profiles such as Carrier Grade and Virtualization, adding in key features and functionality critical for solutions in these vertical markets. Application developers will benefit from the QEMU simulator, accelerating schedules by beginning development before real silicon platforms are available. Additionally, CGX will offer flexibility to choose multiple upgrade options, including Kernel live patching. This technique is particularly useful for applying small patches or security fixes on the Kernel without taking a product offline. It also greatly simplifies maintainability in conjunction with RPM based user-land upgrade, essential for IoT devices. In addition, MontaVista is introducing Docker® in CGX which allows user applications (Docker containers) to be updated one at a time in a layered fashion. An integrated hardware root of trust and package authentication ensures complete security through the upgrade process even in a very large scale deployment.

MontaVista Software, LLC Announces Support of Docker Virtualization Technology in its Carrier Grade Edition 7 on ARM Processors

MontaVista Software, LLC announced support of Docker(R) virtualization technology in its Carrier Grade Edition 7 (CGE7) on ARM processors. As part of CGE7's advanced virtualization technology, MontaVista now supports Docker(R)as an alternative method to a hypervisor for virtualizing applications. MontaVista already supports traditional LXC containers, and has done so for many years. Docker(R)provides a method of container virtualization without the need for a hypervisor, and addresses a number of concerns that container technology had around security and multi-tenant isolation. With Docker(R)and CGE7, Enterprise and Service Provider customers can now use an alternative virtualization method to meet strict networking requirements around high performance, security and reliability -- something traditional hypervisor solutions were not always able to collectively meet.
