“By moving from a distributed hardware environment to a flexible and virtualized environment or cloud, operators can rapidly deploy new applications and services where and when they are needed instead of updating individual central office locations or hardware,” continued Douglas.“KVM can deliver flexible options for not only the enterprise but well beyond to cloud service providers and the broader telecommunications industry,” said Ram Peddibhotla, Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA) Board Member and Director of System Software Planning and Marketing at Intel. “Embedded solutions are one of the key KVM use cases identified by the OVA and we welcome innovative solutions such as the Wind River Open Virtualization Profile that broaden the adoption of KVM.” Wind River Open Virtualization Profile will be available in Q3 2013 and more information can be found at www.windriver.com/announces/open_virtualization_profile.
