WITTENSTEIN and Amazon Web Services announce strategic business alliance

WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems and AWS have formed a Strategic Business Alliance. WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems will support the newly launched IoT Microcontroller Operating System, Amazon FreeRTOS on Amazon Web Services (AWS) with OPENRTOS and SAFERTOS.

Amazon FreeRTOS provides tools you need to quickly and easily deploy a microcontroller-based connected device and develop an Internet of Things (IoT) application without having to worry about the complexity of scaling across millions of devices. Once connected, IoT device applications can take advantage of all of the capabilities of the cloud or continue processing data locally with AWS Greengrass.

Created by Richard Barry in 2003, the FreeRTOS kernel is a market leading embedded real time operating system. Since 2006, WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems (WHIS) has offered exclusive professional licensing under the brand name OPENRTOS, and an upgrade path to SAFERTOS, WHIS’s own safety critical real-time operating system pre-certified by TÜV SÜD. Richard Barry has joined AWS to lead the engineering of Amazon FreeRTOS and the FreeRTOS kernel.

WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems will continue to support & develop OPENRTOS and offer a migration path from Amazon FreeRTOS to SAFERTOS. WHIS will support AWS IoT device developers with OPENRTOS and SAFERTOS as part of their strategic business alliance with AWS as well as continuing to serve their broad customer base in industry sectors ranging from medical and automotive to aerospace.
