Wind River Linux Earns “Best in Show” Award at Embedded World 2020

By Michel Genard


I'm excited to share that Wind River Linux, our commercial-grade embedded Linux development platform for intelligent edge devices and systems, has received Embedded Computing Design’s prestigious “Best in Show” award in the Development Tools & Operating Systems category. The award was announced this week at Embedded World 2020 in Nuremburg, Germany.

The Best in Show Awards recognize the most innovative products presented at Embedded Computing Design events. The judges, comprised of the online publication’s editorial team and advisory board members, focus on three primary criteria in selecting the winners in 10 categories: design excellence, performance compared to competing alternatives, and impact on the embedded engineering market.

The award closely follows our announcement of a new continuous delivery subscription model for Wind River Linux users.  This new approach allows customers to access new releases every few weeks to support their own continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) DevOps processes. Edge connectivity requires constant adjustments to incorporate, validate, and deliver new features and applications in embedded systems. CI/CD supports continuous improvement and innovation by enabling teams to implement changes frequently,  rapidly and reliably. Under the new subscription model, developers can continuously incorporate new features and fixes into mission-critical devices and systems built on our Linux platform. A Wind River Linux subscription also provides access to long-term support and maintenance, including security updates, as well as ongoing threat mitigation to address emerging vulnerabilities identified by the Wind River security team.

We are honored to receive this recognition from Embedded Computing Design. Wind River Linux enables developers to leverage the benefits of open-source technology, optimized for demanding, market-grade applications and use cases across a variety of sectors. At a time when many of our customers need to make changes to their systems weekly, daily or even hourly, our new subscription model addresses the need for frequent, rapid software updates and nonstop security monitoring. We are grateful to the Embedded World judges and to the legions of loyal customers who trust Wind River Linux for critical embedded applications.

Embedded World is the premier showcase for innovations across the full spectrum of embedded technology. Wind River presented virtually at the event sharing how our software portfolio accelerating the evolution from automated to autonomous and leading the 5G revolution across the intelligent edge--for robotics, energy, manufacturing, and autonomous vehicles of all kinds across air, land, and sea.
