Santa Barbara, California – (The Hosting News) – October 24, 2008 – Device software optimization (DSO) and real-time operating systems (RTOS), Green Hills Software, Inc., recently demonstrated its secure environment for hosting Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) applications.
The ISA EXPO in Houston, Texas, was the scene of the multiple Intel-based secure industrial platform showcase, detailing the scalability of the Intel architecture processors and the Integrity real time operating system.
The Green Hills Integrity Padded Cell secure virtualization technology was featured hosting Windows and Linux guest operating systems running on an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The use of secure virtualization technology enables automation users to separate critical resources and networks from personal resources (email, web browsing, and the Internet), reducing the risk of security breaches into critical infrastructure systems. Along with increased security, there are benefits in terms of size, power, and weight. The Iconics Genesis32 automation suite will be hosted inside one of the Integrity Padded Cells. Genesis32 is a HMI/SCADA application used for managing plants and control systems.
Integrity also demonstrated on the Intel Atom Processor N270 targeting low-power industrial applications. The Intel Atom Processor N270 will host real-time tasks common in industrial automation, representing a typical embedded controller that would be found on the factory floor. The Integrity RTOS has been certified to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 by TUV for use in safety-critical control and automation applications, and scales for use in applications ranging from deeply embedded controllers with hard real-time requirements to workstations and server class equipment responsible for ensuring the security of HMI/SCADA applications.
