AMD DAS 1.0 for the Manageability, Virtualization and Security of Embedded Solutions
AMD DAS (DASH, AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V™) Technology, and Security) 1.0 is a term used to describe the various technologies used to help fulfill the increasing security and reliability needs of embedded solutions.
Open standards-based client management tools and technology provide the essential management features businesses need to easily and flexibly support embedded systems. Proprietary management solutions can overload systems with non-essential features, lock organizations into specific vendor solutions, increase management costs and eliminate flexibility.
AMD supports choice in the marketplace with DAS 1.0, featuring DASH 1.1, AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V™) technology and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2, all based solely on open industry standards to enable manageability, virtualization, and security with features that don’t lock solutions into a single, proprietary technology.
By deploying systems that support DAS 1.0, businesses can simplify their embedded system management process and manage a mixed environment in a consistent manner—helping to reduce complexity, simplifying administrative tasks, and contribute to lower overall costs. DASH (Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware) defines a common framework for remote management of systems, providing the flexibility to accomplish essential management tasks such as remote power management, automated system start-up and shut down, patching, remote diagnostics, and system security patch and update compliance, as well as system security in a distributed environment. And it’s easy to safeguard systems with comprehensive security from boot-up to shut down with the combination of AMD chip-level security features like TPM support and AMD Virtualization which enable systems to run secure and real-time operating systems in secure, virtualized sessions.
