Technology pioneered by Wind River® is enabling the world's energy producers to completely virtualize their industrial control systems, ushering in a new era of flexibility and innovation. Now, levels 1–3 of an enterprise architecture—those systems and devices for batch, continuous, and discrete control, as well as manufacturing and operations control—can all be operated in an environment that is 100% digital.
With a virtualized compute environment, continuous process manufacturers can finally move beyond legacy systems and fully optimize their operations. The use of open standards allows producers to permanently reduce OPEX by using commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware rather than maintaining a customized infrastructure. Updates can take place instantly and remotely, via software that also allows for seamless device failover. And security is built-in rather than bolt-on, as keys in embedded boards pass trust up to applications.
The suite of products available from Wind River—including VxWorks®, Wind River Titanium Server™, and Wind River Helix™ Device Cloud—work together to provide a complete solution for the most demanding industrial environments, including safety systems. The leading operating system for embedded devices connects to an ultra-reliable network virtualization platform that works in tandem with a state-of-the-art on-premises cloud.
With more than 30 years of experience building safe and secure intelligent systems, Wind River is enabling the next generation of Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) technology, from the edge to the cloud and back.
