VirtualLogix Supports Intel Devices

SAN FRANCISCO -- VirtualLogix, Inc. today announced that its VLX virtualization solution will be supporting the latest Intel® Atom™ processor Z5XX series-based Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs). Device makers using VLX on these MIDs can simplify hardware designs, reduce costs and enhance the end-user experience through improved quality of voice, multimedia services and stronger security capabilities. VirtualLogix VLX also offers complete power management support for virtualized environments, which reduces MIDs’ overall energy consumption.

MIDs are an emerging category of devices that offer a Web experience similar to a desktop computer on-the-go. The low memory consumption and real-time performance that VLX offers make it very suitable for MIDs. The VLX hypervisor integrates transparently into a Windows or a Linux-based MID with no re-installation of the native operating system (OS) and no intrusion into the existing user environment. As a result, customers can use VLX’s flexible software architecture to securely separate critical applications while boosting the quality of service offerings. Additionally, by servicing the virtual appliances while the main application OS and associated hardware resources are not in use, VLX improves power consumption management.

“VirtualLogix is once again leading the market, breaking new ground for virtualization technology and helping bring next-generation devices to market,” said Peter Richards, CEO, VirtualLogix. “MIDs will allow consumers to connect to the Web anywhere, anytime, and we are pleased to bring virtualization solutions to support Intel-based Mobile Internet Devices.”
