DevOps: Taking Your Infrastructure to the Next Level

High-performing DevOps teams state a 106x faster lead time, and a 7x lower change failure rate, than their lower-performing peers in a 2019 DORA/Google Cloud survey.

Already sold on DevOps? How well is your DevOps organization performing? What's your next step?

Join discussion on how simulation can help you level up your DevOps practices.

What you will learn:

  • How to remove bottlenecks caused by lack of hardware availability
  • Why (and how) choosing accuracy vs. speed may help you go faster
  • How nondestructive testing can save you money
  • How to test on 1 or 100 devices without doing 100x the work

Realizing the DevOps Vision in Embedded Systems

DevOps and other modern CI/CD practices are being quickly adopted in enterprise software development and are making their way into the embedded world.

Market demands for ever more complex systems and faster development cycles mean that the adoption of more efficient development methodologies is rapidly turning into an absolute imperative for embedded systems companies. Even if you had infinite budget, there aren’t enough qualified engineers to get the work done. Using traditional embedded development methods wouldn’t allow the sort of gains that you would see by adopting more efficient methodologies.

Wind River® has risen to meet this trend by developing a portfolio of tools that enable the implementation of new DevOps processes. Wind River Linux, VxWorks®, Wind River Helix™ Virtualization Platform, and Wind River Studio all include critical features in their core architectures that facilitate the DevOps and CI/CD workflow, while Wind River Simics® provides the needed system simulation to avoid getting bogged down with test hardware.

Deploying Containers in a RTOS World

Embedded development is modernizing and transforming digitally, changing forever — and for good. The Internet of Things and the advent of intelligent systems require network connectivity to collect data that can be used for monitoring and analytics. This persistent connectivity calls for constant upgrades and new capabilities as well as rapid fixes for security issues. One of the most efficient and effective ways to accomplish this is through containers.

This demonstration and discussion will touch on some of the embedded use cases where it makes sense to leverage container technology on an RTOS. We will show you how containers can empower a software developer to leverage open source, extend functionality after deployment, and adapt to changing specifications.

What you will learn:

  • Use cases for containers on both Linux and VxWorks
  • How to resource partitioning to maximize container benefits
  • How to rapidly deploy a new application for VxWorks using containers

Redefining the Role of the RTOS

The world of embedded systems is undergoing a profound evolution. Once isolated and purpose-built, embedded systems are increasingly software-defined with much greater requirements for connectivity, reliability, and flexibility.

VxWorks® continues to lead this evolution with even greater capability, giving developers the power to be more productive and innovative. VxWorks enables embedded developers to take a modern approach to build next-generation embedded designs without compromising security, safety, reliability, and performance.

10 Properties of Secure Embedded Systems

Discover 10 principles that together will protect your organization’s systems.

The number of security flaws published last year made 2020 the fourth consecutive year to break records in the number of recorded vulnerabilities. It’s time to change how we think about securing embedded systems.

This white paper covers the most important security design principles that, if adhered to, give you a fighting chance against any attacker who seeks to gain unauthorized access, reverse engineer, steal sensitive information, or otherwise tamper with your embedded system.

10 Best Practices for Secure Embedded Systems

Learn the latest threats to your embedded systems and how to protect against them — even when attackers have already struck.

The number of security flaws published last year made 2020 the fourth consecutive year to break records in the number of recorded vulnerabilities (US-CERT Vulnerability Database). We must change how we think about securing embedded systems.

Join Wind River® for a discussion of the current threat landscape and a look at 10 principles that can achieve a multiplicative effect in helping your organization protect embedded systems.

You will learn:

  • The modern threat landscape for embedded systems
  • Why it’s impossible to always keep all attackers out
  • How to protect a system that an attacker has already breached
  • 10 fundamental and essential properties of secure embedded systems

Smart Linux Solutions for the Intelligent Edge

Linux is the default environment for most software developers and is a popular choice for embedded solutions. However, one of Linux’s greatest strengths, and to some extent its biggest challenge, is that it comes in so many flavors and varieties, each well suited to a particular use case.

Commercially supported embedded Linux is the primary alternative to RYO. Not only are the long-term support and maintenance costs much lower but the technical, business, and legal risks of commercially supported embedded Linux are much lower as well. Commercial vendors can also provide full development services, including platform, services, maintenance, and support, which increase productivity and reduce the overhead of maintaining your own unique embedded Linux distribution.
