[Updated May 18, 2007] — Real-time virtualization specialist VirtualLogix (formerly Jaluna) has opened a Tokyo office. The company expects its flagship VLX processor virtualization technology to help Japanese device makers “run multiple OSes simultaneously on single or multi-core processors, while maintaining hard real-time and high throughput requirements.”

VirtualLogix said… that opening a Japanese office marks a “new phase” in its worldwide growth. Led by Osamu Koshigoe, formerly of Lantronix and A.I. Corporation, the new office will provide local service and support for the company's VLX and other virtualization products to Japanese customers.

Prior to joining VirtualLogix, Koshigoe presided over device networking specialist Lantronix, where he established and grew Lantronix's Japanese office. He holds a B.A. in Economics from the Hosei University, Tokyo, and also formerly served in product management and sales management positions at A.I. Corporation.

Koshigo said, “By opening its doors in Japan, VirtualLogix underscores its commitment to providing its customers and partners with local service and support as well as the resources of a global company.”

Takafumi Nishijima, president of ARM Japan, stated, “VirtualLogix's real-time virtualization solution increases the market value of ARM processors. With VirtualLogix, we can keep the real-time performance of an RTOS combined with Linux, while simultaneously adding improved security and device management capabilities.”

Ryutaro Tanaka, manager of TI's DSP platform business development in Japan, added, “With VirtualLogix virtualization software, our customers can run the DSP/BIOS kernel and Linux simultaneously.”

VirtualLogix (formerly Jaluna) is based in Sunnyvale, Calif., and keeps an office in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, a high-tech business-focused suburb on the western outskirts of Paris.
