MontaVista Launches 7th Generation Carrier Grade Linux for Virtualized Network and Cloud Infrastructure

MontaVista's CGE7 Adds Hardened Virtualization Capabilities and Services

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MontaVista® Software, LLC, a leader in Embedded Linux® commercialization services, today announced MontaVista Carrier Grade Edition 7 (CGE 7), the next generation platform for multi-architecture virtualization and abstraction for the Network Infrastructure Market.  The seventh generation platform provides several new and updated technologies to enable dynamic cloud based networks.  The standards based solution also brings new enhancements to security and up-time availability.   MontaVista's CGE 7 is designed to meet the demands of the virtualized network, providing application portability, dynamic configuration, and real-time performance in a single platform.  These new features enable providers of Next-Generation Networks to handle the explosive growth and increase in traffic, specifically with the rapid adoption of cloud technology and the growth in multimedia and video rich content.

MontaVista's CGE7 delivers best in class open Carrier Grade technology. It is complemented with services delivered by MontaVista's world-class Engineering Services group to assist customers in building solutions to support their specific use cases. These solutions range from portability of legacy applications to scalable KVM implementations with real-time performance.  In addition to the initial solution, the Engineering Services group can build out a full test and validation process and a long term support and maintenance strategy to suit the requirements of any deployment strategy.

MontaVista recognizes that security is critical for uptime availability in a network.  The CGE 7 update leverages the Security Technology Implementation Guildline (STIG) and Common Criteria Operation System Protection Profile (OSPP) standards to build out the security features for the platform.  Features  in these guidelines that are applicable to network and embedded devices are included.  As a trusted Operating System Vendor, MontaVista receives notification of all security fixes and CGE7's security team provides rapid updates of any new security fixes to the CGE 7 platform.   To help further improve uptime availability, Live Kernel Patching has been included in the product.  This new feature allows kernel patching of a live system without bringing the system down, giving network managers more flexibility to schedule  any down time required for maintenance of a system.

MontaVista's commitment to standards in the network infrastructure market has set MontaVista's CGE 7 apart.  In 2009, MontaVista's trailblazing support of the Open Embedded build system Bitbake (now Yocto) laid the path for a major industry shift.  MontaVista CGE 7 is compliant to the Yocto v1.2 specification.  Other specifications that MontaVista includes for the network infrastructure  market in CGE 7 are: CGL 5.0, LSB 4.1, and IPv6 Certification Ready.

"CGE 7 contains new features along with many updated packages that help companies deliver the next generation of applications that satisfy the need for higher utilization of equipment and the dynamic network architectures that define today's cloud based solutions in a high availability network," says Patrick MacCartee, Director of Marketing for MontaVista. "Improving the deterministic and real-time capabilities of KVM makes performance of the environments more predictable and reliable."

MontaVista Carrier Grade Edition is the 7th generation of Linux commercialization and innovation for the network infrastructure market. MontaVista is currently working with strategic customers with an early access program and CGE 7 will be generally available in 2Q2013.
