Linux Magazin wrote (in German) about their experience using FoundriesFactory and concluded, “Anyone who needs a powerful environment for the development of IoT applications and their operation should therefore have seen Foundries.io at least once. It's easy to try out: the test account is free, and even a single Raspberry Pi 6 is enough to get started."
“We’re excited to partner with MontaVista to support its new MVEdge product, incorporating the FoundriesFactory DevOps platform” said George Grey, CEO of Foundries.io. “Coupling MontaVista’s storied Linux and services expertise with our groundbreaking approach of using cloud technologies to develop, deploy and maintain Linux software accelerates time to market and delivers new opportunities to OEMs building and deploying secure intelligent devices at the Edge.”
Stacey Higginbotham provides her own inimitable commentary on the Arduino Portenta X8 announcement. “There’s a lot to like with this announcement, because by creating this partnership [with Foundries.io] Arduino is putting a security model at the forefront of its industrial platform that will adapt to the needs of the device, which itself is connected from the get-go and designed for the long haul."
Jason Bloomberg explains in his Intellx Brain Candy brief why the first rule of cybersecurity is to keep all of your software up-to-date – especially the firmware and operating system code that everything else depends on. He continues by describing how difficult this is for IoT devices, and how Foundries.io solves these problems with its open source, open specification IoT platform.
Jean-Luc Aufranc (CNX Software) looks at the new Arduino Pro Portenta X8 board, explains the importance of the collaboration with Foundries.io for the secure and customizable Linux microPlatform OS with incremental over the air (OTA) updates, and Arm SystemReady compliance.
Applying modern security best practices for monitoring vulnerabilities, remediating and maintaining software in embedded systems, is overdue, stated Kate Stewart, VP for dependable embedded systems and SPDX Project co-founder at The Linux Foundation. “Foundries.io has been focused on bringing an effective solution to this problem to the market, and the partnership with Arduino has the potential to introduce a new option for making these systems more dependable over time at scale,” she told LinuxInsider.
LinuxGizmos provides an in-depth report on the new, FoundriesFactory enabled, Arduino Pro Portenta X8 board. They also explore the history of Arduino’s previous Linux board, the Yún, and how Arduino has influenced other boards like Raspberry Pi and Beagleboard.
Ian Drew explains how many many manufacturers, and the suppliers of the electronic industrial control systems they use, lack the security expertise that is needed to effectively implement industrial transformation, “Without the ability to employ the latest digital security practices coupled with the ability to deploy frequent software updates, manufacturers can be exposed to dangerous security vulnerabilities and threats as a result of the huge attack surface that results from connecting everything in the Internet of Things.”
Bill Curtis, IoT analyst in residence at Moor Insights and Strategy, reviews the most disruptive 2022 IoT Technology trends and explains how Foundries.io and our partners are accelerating the end of the "DIY" era for IoT, and eliminating this barrier to growth.
