Intel’s industrial workload consolidation platform with the MXE-5301 enables the combination of several applications—or workloads—and their respective host operating systems into a single computing solution.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
ADLINK Technology Inc., a global provider of embedded building blocks and Application Ready Intelligent Platforms (ARIPs), today announced its Matrix MXE-5301 fanless, embedded computer as the first hardware platform to be certified for the Intel® Industrial Solutions System Consolidation series. The ADLINK MXE-5301 supports a wide temperature range and offers a fanless and cable-free design, making it uniquely suited for industrial applications. Intel’s industrial workload consolidation platform with the MXE-5301 enables the combination of several applications—or workloads—and their respective host operating systems into a single computing solution. What were once multiple, separate systems can now be combined into just one platform using advanced hypervisor technology that allows host operating systems to coexist. For the customer, workload consolidation reduces the number of individual devices, allowing a single, smaller footprint and lowered system and environmental complexity.
“ADLINK has a long history in industrial automation design. It’s exciting to be able to showcase modern software tools and demonstrate how the market will benefit,” said Roy Wan, general manager, Measurement and Automation at ADLINK Technology. “We look forward to continuing our work with Intel on this leading effort to build industry-specific application-ready platforms.”
“Increasing reliability and reducing complexity on the factory floor are critical needs for industrial automation,” explained Jim Robinson, general manager, Segments and Broad Market, Internet of Things Solutions Group at Intel. “Consolidating heterogeneous workloads using hypervisor technology relies on a capable and reliable hardware foundation. The collaboration with ADLINK allows us to introduce deployment-ready platforms that can handle those computing challenges.”
In addition to the current collaboration on the workload consolidation program, ADLINK is also proud to announce its promotion by Intel to Premier Member in the Intel® Intelligent Systems Alliance. From modular components to market-ready systems, Intel and the 250+ global member companies of the Alliance provide the performance, connectivity, manageability, and security developers need to create smart, connected systems.
