Wind River is pleased to announce availability of the VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS) client for the IBM Watson IoT platform. This is part of the IBM/Wind River collaboration to advance IoT deployments for industrial customers with new “edge-to-cloud” recipes designed to simplify and accelerate the development of smart connected devices. This integration marks the first in a series of VxWorks clients for cloud service providers to follow.
The VxWorks client for IBM Watson IoT enables VxWorks-powered IoT devices to connect directly to the IBM Watson IoT platform. The client is based on the IBM Watson IoT SDK, and enables IoT developers to create devices using VxWorks that can leverage the IBM Watson IoT platform and IBM Bluemix cloud services. The addition of this client further makes VxWorks the ideal RTOS for IoT, in addition to the safety, security, and virtualization capabilities already provided to meet today’s development challenges for building intelligent, connected systems – while at the same time, helps make the planet smarter and greener!
To offer maximum flexibility to our customers, different clients will be integrated into VxWorks in the near future to enable customers to choose their cloud provider of choice. Watch for future updates or contact us.
The VxWorks client for IBM Watson IoT is available now for free on the VxWorks Marketplace.
