We know you care about building secure, robust software — we do, too!

DornerWorks has been developing virtualized products using type-1 hypervisors like open source Xen based Virtuosity® for years, and won a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract to explore its usage in aerospace and defense.

The Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC enables some of the most sophisticated features of virtualization, and Virtuosity helps you make the most of this powerful processing solution.

As one of only three Xilinx Premier Alliance Partners in North America offering design services, DornerWorks engineers are certified annually, and adept at implementing the latest tools, technologies and techniques.

Simplify growth

Virtualization simplifies growth, making it possible to isolate functions so that a breach or failure in one is contained. Not even security vulnerabilities in the VM’s OS can compromise functions in another VM, providing defense in depth.

Centralize monitoring and management

Virtualization allows for centralized monitoring and management external to the software functions being monitored. This can be used to detect and dynamically respond to breaches and faults, restarting faulted VMs or terminating a compromised VM before it is exploited.

Maximize up-time

A centralized monitoring function is useful in embedded applications that place a greater emphasis on up-time. The monitoring function can switch to a backup VM in case of a fault, to take over with minimal loss of service.
