OpenSynergy | March 06, 2023
OpenSynergy has announced that the ‘COQOS Hypervisor Software Development Kit’ (SDK) has been successfully ported to the STMicroelectronics Stellar family of Integrated MCUs. The software firm, based in Berlin, has collaborated with STMicroelectronics to prove that the automotive virtual platform, 'COQOS Hypervisor SDK for real-time processors', uses hardware virtualization and extends it. Virtualization allows automakers to safely and successfully run numerous processes and applications on a shared piece of hardware without interfering with one another. Future generations of the domain and zonal designs will be built on the foundation created by this method technically.
To fully utilize the vast potential of the new class of automotive MCUs, function separation by hardware virtualization is not enough. To further facilitate the integration of several applications and operating systems working simultaneously, various functions are placed side-by-side on virtualization technology such as COQOS Hypervisor SDK. OpenSynergy's COQOS Hypervisor SDK includes a hypervisor and virtual devices, enabling the systems to connect without additional hardware. Thus, ‘VIRTIO-CAN’ is used instead of traditional CAN buses (a CAN implementation in shared memory, instead of wires). Since 2018, OpenSynergy has been an active member of the OASIS Open consortium, specifying the essential devices per the open VIRTIO standard for developing these virtual devices.
Using the COQOS hypervisor in conjunction with STMicroelectronics' Stellar virtualization technology, it is possible to entirely isolate the software from the hardware, allowing the operating systems and the applications executing on them to function in isolation from one another. They can be modularly updated also.
Philippe Prats, Vice President of Automotive Marketing and Applications, EMEA Region, STMicroelectronics said, "We developed Stellar Integration MCUs for Software Defined Vehicles specifically to deliver hardware virtualization able to integrate many real-time and multi-ASIL vECUs".

Hardware virtualization enables domain functions (such as power distribution, body control, and GW functions) to function concurrently on a single Stellar MCU. Stellar's high-performance, multi-core design expands integrated functions necessary for a zonal or domain-based strategy. Spatial aggregation of functions, such as zonal computers, will be favored by future architectures as it reduces the cabling required for the entire vehicle. In addition, reduced vehicle weight and simplified integration are possible due to the cost savings made possible by harnessing via zonalization and virtual ECUs.
OpenSynergy, founded in 2007 and headquartered in Berlin, provides embedded software products for the next generation of vehicles. Hypervisor and communication products enable integrated driving. It's communications platforms include the automotive-leading Bluetooth stack Blue SDK. Many OEMs use it as their Bluetooth reference. OpenSynergy offers complementary Automotive-Grade software components for the Android Open Source Project to enhance Android's automotive adoption. In addition, it offers engineering services for product customization.

Delinea | March 15, 2023
On March 14, 2023, Delinea Platform, a cloud-native platform for Delinea's well-known PAM solutions, enabled dynamic permission controls, end-to-end visibility, and adaptive security.
Delinea Platform supports the latest version of Secret Server, its winning vault solution. It also supports a secure remote access service for suppliers and remote workers that doesn't require a VPN, as well as a rich environment for integration across the Delinea marketplace.
According to the Identity Defined Security Alliance study, 84% of firms had an identity-related breach last year. Gartner predicts that enterprises that deploy cybersecurity mesh architectures will cut security incident costs by 90% by 2024. By implementing a privileged access management platform as part of their cybersecurity mesh strategy, enterprises are able to move away from multiple-point solutions. This results in improved visibility, security, and efficiency across the organization. Delinea Platform enables streamlined authorization for all identities, restricting access to an organization's critical hybrid cloud infrastructure and sensitive data. This simplified security approach helps minimize risk and ensure compliance with industry regulations.
The growing number of siloed security products and the exponential expansion of human and machine identities with privileges make the management of privileged access difficult. As Delinea Platform adds more features, businesses will be able to manage authorization for all types of identities from a single location, which will improve efficiency and security. With analytics-based access controls and adaptive privilege automation in IT infrastructure, future updates to Delinea Platform will make sure that security stays consistent. This will ensure that identities get the right access at the right time with the authorized permissions.
Phil Calvin, Chief Product Officer at Delinea, stated, "The Delinea Platform will revolutionize the market by unifying and extending Privileged Access Management, dramatically reducing risk from the most common thread across all cyberattacks – compromised identities."
He added, "We are excited to take this first step by unifying the critical and core PAM capabilities on the Delinea Platform to provide world-class usability, seamless security, and simplified pricing that will accelerate adoption for our customers."

Delinea, an upcoming enterprise, is a significant provider of privileged access management (PAM) solutions for modern and hybrid organizations. Delinea Platform effortlessly extends PAM by authorizing all identities, limiting access to an organization's most crucial hybrid cloud infrastructure and sensitive data, reducing risk, ensuring compliance, and making security easier. The company simplifies and limits access for thousands of clients globally. Its customer base includes small enterprises as well as large-scale financial institutions, intelligence agencies, and companies involved in constructing and maintaining critical infrastructure.

Mirantis | January 13, 2023
Mirantis has announced that its Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes (MOSK) has seen virtual machines deployed on its infrastructure increase more than 10 times the previous year. The latest release of MOSK 22.5 includes full support for OpenStack Yoga, shared file system-as-a-service using OpenStack Manila to support legacy workloads, and easy integration with monitoring systems to provide data on the state of cloud resources.
MOSK makes it possible for cloud-native and traditional applications to use digital infrastructure. This makes sure that applications are reliable and gives users full control over application data. MOSK offers centralized logging, monitoring, and alerting, as well as tools to automate management of the infrastructure underneath, from setting up hardware to configuring software.
Artem Andreev, product manager, Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes commented, “The significant growth we’ve seen of VM deployment on MOSK in 2022 serves, yet again, as proof that OpenStack is still a relevant and important infrastructure for virtualized workloads at enterprises and service providers.” He further said, “MOSK hardens the open source OpenStack as the basis for mission-critical operations, removing the typical challenges of OpenStack cluster deployment and operations with an easy-to-use virtualization platform – containerized and optimally-configured for Kubernetes.
Mirantis helps companies ship code faster on both public and private clouds. This makes developers more productive because they don't have to worry about managing infrastructure. The company takes a ZeroOps approach to managing and running Kubernetes and cloud environments by using intelligent automation and cloud-native skills. Mirantis provides a public cloud experience on any infrastructure, from the data center to the edge, with a single cloud experience for complete app and DevOps portability, a single pane of glass, and automated full-stack lifecycle management, all based on open source.
Mirantis works with some of the biggest companies in the world, like Adobe, DocuSign, Inmarsat, Nationwide Insurance, PayPal, Reliance Jio, Societe Generale, Splunk, and S&P Global.
