VIRTUAL DESKTOP STRATEGIES
Scale Computing | April 29, 2021
Scale Computing, a market chief in edge computing, virtualization and hyperconverged arrangements, today declared that Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS) 18 is currently accessible and upgraded on Scale Computing HC3. When joined with Parallels RAS, Scale Computing HC3 empowers executives to quickly arrangement and oversee virtual machines (VM) alongside RDSH meetings and applications halfway from the Parallels RAS Console to make Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) arrangements quicker, more affordable and simpler to utilize.
Parallels RAS naturally produces and conveys VDI work areas on request, empowering executives to make and send visitor VMs on the fly and make an expert virtual work area once and quickly clone many virtual work areas on their HC3 Cluster. They can rapidly and safely convey Windows applications and work areas, and Parallels RAS coordinates with Windows Virtual Desktop to give bound together responsibility and asset the executives. Parallels RAS gives a straightforward, steady client experience on any gadget (counting cell phones and PCs), from any area.
"Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) makes VDI arrangements fast to convey, simple to oversee and affordable—improving security, incorporating the board and lessening IT responsibilities," said Nick Dobrovolskiy, Senior Vice President of Engineering and Support at Parallels. "The blend of Parallels RAS 18 and Scale Computing HC3 self-governing framework conveys expanded alternatives, customizations and assets to IT associations for new degrees of foundation adaptability and worker efficiency."
Scale Computing HC3 is a hyperconverged and edge IT framework stage that consolidates workers, stockpiling and virtualization capacities into a solitary answer for make IT foundation simpler for associations of each size. The stage functions admirably in VDI conditions across all verticals and associations requiring basic, secure and low-support IT framework alternatives.
"The capacity for chairmen to send, oversee and become their VDI surroundings effectively is a higher priority than any time in recent memory in the present work-from-anyplace conditions," said Craig Theriac, VP Product Management at Scale Computing. "The reconciliation of Parallels RAS 18 with Scale Computing HC3 progresses the capacity to arrangement VDI VM's simpler and quicker than inheritance VDI arrangements at a savvy value point that addresses our client's issues."

OpenSynergy | September 08, 2021
OpenSynergy introduced today the company's new automotive reference platform for virtual Android™ 11 (based on Trout). With technology from Google and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., the reference platform features the integration of the Virtual I/O (VIRTIO) framework into Android Automotive OS, which allows Android to run on any hypervisor supporting the upcoming VIRTIO devices and any system on chip (SoC). The reference platform contains Android 11, a board support package (BSP) from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and the VIRTIO-based COQOS Hypervisor SDK, all of which are running on a Snapdragon® Automotive Development Platform (ADP).
VIRTIO is an established virtualization standard maintained by the OASIS Open consortium that provides a device sharing framework for devices such as Block, Network, Console, graphics processing unit (GPU), Input, etc. As active members of the consortium, OpenSynergy and Google have worked to expand the scope of the open standards in the automotive domain. As there are missing automotive-specific VIRTIO devices, the two companies are working within the OASIS consortium to close the gap. Furthermore, the collaboration between OpenSynergy and Google aims to allow flexibility to automakers and Tier-1 suppliers to switch between SoCs and hypervisors to best match their needs.
The reference platform showcases an Android Automotive OS-based Cockpit Domain Controller (CDC) architecture. Similar to other CDCs, the underlying hypervisor guarantees the secure coexistence of Android (typically a QM system) with systems of higher criticality, such as the real-time OS displaying the telltales on an Instrument Cluster (typically ASIL B).
The novelty lies in deploying a fully virtualized Android Automotive OS (Trout), i.e., an Android version with no dependencies on the hardware. Instead of directly accessing the hardware devices, Android accesses these devices using the standardized VIRTIO framework provided by the underlying virtual platform.
A fully virtualized Android Automotive OS can easily be ported onto any hardware supported by the underlying virtual platform. In the case of the COQOS Hypervisor SDK, the hardware is any automotive relevant ARMv8-A-based SoC. The clean architectural separation introduced by VIRTIO makes updating Android and the BSP easy.
The reference platform and the usage of virtualized Android Automotive OS were showcased over the last year in several promotional events. Now, customers can access it and develop their specific applications on it. The released reference platform is intended only for research and pre-development purposes and not for series production. Customers can acquire the Snapdragon ADP through Qualcomm Technologies' distribution channels. The reference platform software is now available at OpenSynergy.
Jonathan Siegel, Portfolio Manager of OpenSynergy: "It has been an honor to work with Google and Qualcomm Technologies on such a game-changing project for the automotive industry. After intense years of development, the day has come in which we at OpenSynergy are finally releasing the virtual Android Automotive OS reference platform to the community. We are confident that this will ignite a new dynamic features we did not think of will be developed; easier deployment processes will be implemented. And we look forward to what comes next for VIRTIO-based Android. The community will guide us!"
