"Managing Windows 7 End of Life in Embedded Systems"

Upgrade and secure your systems without hardware replacement.

Microsoft will end support for Windows 7 in January 2020. This presents a dilemma for anyone who has deployed Windows 7 as the OS for an embedded system. The simplest response to handling the end of life (EOL) of Windows 7 is to upgrade to Windows 10. However, for many devices, this is not possible without a costly hardware upgrade. But continuing to run Windows 7 unsupported is to court disaster, in terms of security and stability. Wind River offers two solutions to this dilemma: One is to add Wind River® Linux® and a hypervisor (i.e., KVM) to the software stack, making it possible to run Windows 10 on existing hardware. Second is to avoid the Windows upgrade cycle entirely by migrating the native operating system from Windows to Wind River Linux.
