OpenSynergy contributes to VIRTIO

The company for embedded automotive software OpenSynergy has now become member of the OASIS consortium and will contribute its expertise to the open industry standard VIRTIO.   OpenSynergy already supports VIRTIO in its product COQOS Hypervisor SDK.  With further extensions, VIRTIO will play a central role in the architecture of automotive devices, such as domain controllers and cockpit controllers, to support an eco-system of compatible software solutions.  Regis Adjamah, CEO of OpenSynergy, explains the importance of basing hypervisor platforms on open standards, “OEM´s and Tier-1 suppliers will have greater freedom in choosing the hardware platform, the hypervisor platform and the guest operating system that fits their needs. VIRTIO is the starting point to achieve this goal.”
