VirtualLogix Expands Footprint in Asia with Selection of MDS Technology for Distribution in Korea
VirtualLogix, Inc., the Real-Time Virtualization company and MDS Technology, the leading Korean development solution company, today announced a distribution partnership to provide local access, sales and support for VirtualLogixs real-time virtualization software solutions. In addition, MDS Technology brings its considerable embedded systems expertise to offer advanced development and integration services to customers. This partnership will expand VirtualLogixs footprint in Korea, as part of the companys Asia expansion plan, bringing the benefits of virtualization to the global, embedded market.

VirtualLogix is the leader in real-time virtualization software, said Hyunchul Kim, CEO of MDS Technology. Through this partnership, customers in the Korean market will be able to take advantage of VirtualLogixs unique real-time virtualization technology, enabling developers to lower bill of materials and speed time to market by making it possible for multiple operating systems to run concurrently on shared hardware.

Embedded device developers are increasingly adopting Linux to create advanced functionality, yet often need to leverage existing software investments by reusing applications and utilizing commercial or proprietary real-time operating systems. VirtualLogixs VLX software enables multiple operating systems (OS) to run concurrently on shared hardware, while maintaining hard real-time and high throughput requirements, allowing customers to lower bill of materials and speed time to market.

As the leader in real-time virtualization, we must continue to expand our global footprint and Korea is an essential market. With a presence in North America, Europe, and Japan, this marks an important milestone in the companys growth as we seek to expand our footprint in the Asia-Pacific market, said Peter Richards, CEO for VirtualLogix. MDS familiarity with the Korean market, key partnerships with leading semiconductor companies in the region and established name in the embedded market makes it an ideal go-to-market partner. We look forward to working closely with them to provide our customers with expanded access to leading real-time virtualization solutions.
