MontaVista® Leads the ARM®s Processor Race with Software Support of Docker® Virtualization Technology

San Jose, Calif. – Oct 1, 2014 ® MontaVista® Software, LLC, a leader in Embedded Platform and Cloud Distribution Software, today announced support of Docker® virtualization technology in its Carrier Grade Edition 7 (CGE7) on ARM processors. As part of CGE7‘s advanced virtualization technology, MontaVista now supports Docker® as an alternative method to a hypervisor for virtualizing applications. MontaVista already supports traditional LXC containers, and has done so for many years. Docker® provides a method of container virtualization without the need for a hypervisor, and addresses a number of concerns that container technology had around security and multi-tenant isolation. With Docker® and CGE7, Enterprise and Service Provider customers can now use an alternative virtualization method to meet strict networking requirements around high performance, security and reliability – something traditional hypervisor solutions were not always able to collectively meet.

MontaVista will be demonstrating the support of Docker® virtualization technology at ARM TechCon on October 1-2, 2014 in booth 707, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California. MontaVista will also be exhibiting their CGE7 development environment in their booth. We invite you come visit the booth or reserve a private meeting or demonstration by sending an email to

MontaVista is a major contributor to the Linaro Networking Group (LNG) founded by ARM and leading processor vendors. Linaro and MontaVista have been trailblazing support for ARM and are working closely with leading Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEM) that plan to launch networking products using ARM. With the support for Docker® and CGE7, TEMs can now provide their end customers an alternative option to meeting their virtualization requirements.

“MontaVista already provides hypervisor virtualization support on CGE7 through its MV Cloud product. We are excited to continue being a leader in the Embedded Cloud market by providing our customers an additional virtualization option through the support of Docker®,” said Monear Jalal, Sr. Director of Marketing for MontaVista Software, “Customers will now have the flexibility and choice in implementing reliable and suitable solutions to meet any of their virtualization needs.”
