Protection Against Security Vulnerabilities
Wind River provides critical Linux updates for Pulsar systems, from Linux kernel patches to security fixes. Critical fixes are hosted in a public Wind River repository, with a full range of bug and security fixes available.
Run Any Application from Any Ecosystem
Pulsar enables application middleware abstraction, allowing any application from any ecosystem to run on any device. You can build and add packages on the target from a certified repository—all while running multiple isolated systems (containers) on a single control host.
Simple Commercial Terms
Pulsar simplifies going to market on a commercial-ready embedded Linux platform. Wind River has worked with select original design manufacturer (ODM) partners to create a certified Pulsar image bundled with select hardware platforms that include support and software maintenance out of the box. Better still, there are no licensing contracts or subscriptions necessary. Simply purchase the platform, innovate, and deploy.
