Wind River Helix Virtualization Platform Wins 2019 American Business Bronze Stevie Award

We’re pleased to announce that Wind River Helix Virtualization Platform has been named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Software Development Solution category in the annual American Business Awards, the nation’s premier business awards program.

The recently launched, Helix Platform combines the company’s industry-leading VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS) and embedded Linux distribution into an edge compute software platform. The solution is applicable across a variety of markets, runs in multiple processing architectures, enabling virtualization and the consolidation of applications with different levels of criticality.

Specifically, Helix Platform is unique in that it addresses a wide range of critical infrastructure development needs, from highly-dynamic environments without certification requirements, to highly-regulated static applications such as in avionics and industrial, as well as systems requiring the mixing of safety-certified applications with non-certified ones, such as in automotive and medical. It maximizes ROI and total cost of ownership (TCO) by increasing asset value and reducing operational costs.
