Virtual Lab

Wind River Studio Virtual Lab speeds development cycles with earlier, more frequent and consistent testing. Leverage uniform, cloud-based management of simulated and physical hardware resources to automate embedded testing and maximize costly development resources.

Remove the bottleneck of limited embedded hardware availability with cloud access to shared virtual and physical assets.

Wind River® Studio Virtual Lab manages secure manual and programmatic access to shared virtual and physical development devices.

Manage Virtual and Physical Targets in the Cloud

Easily and securely share testing assets in the cloud, including hardware test benches, in-house virtual models, and a comprehensive library of Wind River–provided virtual models.

Intuitive Management, Access, and Reservations

Easily manage, configure, reserve, and schedule testing assets through a centralized platform for reliable access from manual and programmatic workflows.

Debug and Test Complex Systems in the Cloud

Virtual and physical testing resources include setup, configuration, and teardown scripts to ensure predictable start and end states when debugging and testing complex software systems.

Integration with Studio

Virtual Lab is tightly integrated with Studio and can be a configurable and interchangeable building block in Wind River Studio Pipelines and Wind River Studio Test Automation.

Secure Access (Defense-in-Depth Approach)

A secure gateway utilizes authentication, authorization, and encrypted communication channels to enable secure access to Studio Virtual Lab.

Remote Access to Terminal Console

Access from anywhere via a secure SSH connection link to the OS terminal interface and support custom commands.

Secure shared access to testing resources from anywhere

Studio Virtual Lab enables developers working in different time zones or on different projects to securely share centrally managed physical boards, reducing bottlenecks while improving utilization of scarce hardware. Developers can manually or programmatically access the target orchestration and registration manager to identify, reserve, and attach to a shared physical device when debugging, testing, or deploying their software.

Scaling DevOps through simulation

Outfitting development teams with enough hardware to scale their productivity has traditionally been a challenge, but a virtual hardware target management system enables users to create virtual target boards at scale. They can run applications, debug code, and execute tests the same way they would on a physical board, but the cloud also supercharges the agility of virtual targets with processing power and resource availability, so they can execute regression testing in minutes instead of hours.

Studio Virtual Lab currently supports full system simulation and rapid testing simulation. The Studio Virtual Lab REST APIs provide programmatic access to identify, reserve, and attach a shared pool of emulated, simulated, and physical test environments. Through Studio Pipelines, Studio Virtual Lab building blocks can be quickly and easily integrated into a CI/CD pipeline for testing at scale.

Bring your own model

Studio Virtual Lab provides Studio customers the flexibility to register their own virtual targets. Each configured target offers a choice to add data persistence between sessions to provide rapid stand-up, storage, and repurposing of the test environment for different project needs. This capability further extends to allow users to adapt an out-of-the-box virtual target to match their specific use cases and workflows.
