MontaVista Software has announced the availability of MVShield for Yocto, a professional services offering to support customer’s Linux distribution created with Yocto Project software, giving access to support and maintenance services without any migration effort to commercial Linux baselines.
MontaVista will maintain and support the customer’s specific Yocto Project created Linux distribution.
This is a continuation of MontaVista’s expanding distribution support strategy, now branded as “MVShield.” MontaVista’s MVShield program will offer the build, test, maintenance and support infrastructure available to distributions beyond MontaVista Linux. MontaVista has already launched the program with a service offering for CentOS.
MVShield for Yocto services from MontaVista will include extended support and maintenance term, up to 10 years or more; security/CVE and defect fixing on the customer chosen Yocto Project built baseline; technical support based on an agreed Service Level Agreement, customizable to customers’ needs, including 24×7 option; and additional professional services for board support packages, device driver optimization or any other embedded software enhancements.
Customers’ product teams also have the option to start development with OpenCGX baseline that is similar to MontaVista’s CGX product, with the option to migrate to either commercially supported CGX product at a later point or continue to use their chosen baseline as a Yocto Project created product branch (or Frozen Branch), as needed for their IoT/Edge, Medical, 5G and network infrastructure products.
The MVShield for Yocto service is now available from MontaVista.
