Coretelligent | February 16, 2023
On February 15, 2023, Coretelligent, a leading provider of comprehensive managed and co-managed white glove IT support, digital transformation, cybersecurity, cloud integration and compliance and Norwest Equity Partners (NEP), a renowned middle-market investment firm, announced the acquisition of NetCom Systems, Inc. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
NetCom Systems, headquartered in Roswell, GA, has been providing IT support to businesses throughout the Southeast for 36 years. They offer a range of services, such as security, managed and co-managed IT solutions, business continuity, and cloud services.
This acquisition provides Coretelligent with additional network and cloud infrastructure, virtual desktop infrastructure and application management, which improves the current resources and enables necessary redundancies to strengthen its already secure infrastructure further.
This is Coretelligent's sixth acquisition in total and the third since NEP added Coretelligent to its investment portfolio in October 2021. SoundView IT Solutions, LLC., United Technology Group, LLC., Lighthouse Technology Partners, Soundshore Technology Group and Chateaux are among Coretelligent's previous acquisitions.
Coretelligent's Founder, President, and CEO, Kevin J. Routhier, commented, "We are delighted to welcome NetCom and their top-tier customers and well-respected team into the Coretelligent family. Our shared tenet of being a trusted partner, passion for providing first-rate customer service, high standards for technical expertise, and the comparable makeup of our solutions made bringing our two firms together a natural conclusion." He added, "Through the acquisition of NetCom, Coretelligent has effectively enhanced its services and further strengthened its commitment to delivering the highest-quality service. This acquirement is a mutually advantageous arrangement that benefits our shared clients and provides our current and new team members with abundant opportunities."

UNICOM Engineering | January 11, 2023
UNICOM Engineering announced plans to launch new server products based on 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, named Sapphire Rapids. These new servers will provide a best combination of performance and reliability for high density applications and will be a solution for customers facing demanding workloads in AI, analytics, storage, and more.
The server products will include features such as built-in accelerators, enhanced security, higher throughput, and increased density. They will also be optimized for cloud, enterprise, network, security, IoT, and HPC and have different configurations to match storage and I/O requirements. These configurations use variations of a number of scalable Intel Sapphire Rapid-SP Microarchitecture processors, hot swap drives, expansion cards and drive bays with embedded RAID technology.
Austin Hipes, Chief Technologist and VP of Engineering at UNICOM Engineering, said, "Our customers are facing more demanding workloads than ever as the growth of data drives AI, analytics, storage, and more. Intel Xeon scalable processors accelerate performance to handle today's fastest growing workloads with built-in accelerators, enhanced security, higher throughput, and increased density while enabling significant product differentiation. Our latest platforms will help early adopters secure a competitive edge by leveraging the architecture's unmatched performance, memory, storage, and networking options."
UNICOM Engineering will also provide validation and optimization services to ensure smooth transition to this and future Intel Xeon processor upgrades.

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.
