SUNNYVALE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 7, 2013 — Parallocity, provider of the Zeus Virtual Machine® (ZVM) Dynamic Analysis Framework for automated software defect detection and code analytics, today announced it has joined the ARM Connected Community, the industry’s largest ecosystem of ARM technology-based products and services. As part of the ARM Connected Community, Parallocity gains access to a full range of resources to help it market and deploy its innovative solutions that will enable developers to get their ARM Powered® products to market faster.
“Parallocity provides two ZVM-based tools for runtime memory analysis and concurrency defect detection, they include ZVM-U for large-scale user space applications and ZVM-K for complex loadable kernel modules and device drivers. Both tools automate the detection of concurrency errors, like data races and deadlocks, as well as memory errors and memory leaks in single- and multi-threaded C and C++ code running on the Linux, Android, and BSD operating systems,” stated David Cowan, VP of Sales and Business Development at Parallocity. “Utilizing ZVM for unit and regression test cases companies can get their ARM Powered® products to market faster, at lower cost, with higher quality code leading to a better end-user experience.”
Traditional runtime tools are inefficient because they instrument the binary image. This leads to slow execution and huge memory bloat. As such, their use is typically limited to unit testing. By contrast, ZVM-U and ZVM-K analyze application source code then add instrumentation only to key data structures. This enables customers deploying products based on ARM’s multi-core Cortex® 32- and 64-bit processors to use their preferred compilers to generate instrumented images that are exceptionally fast and memory-efficient. These customers can utilize ZVM for defect detection in products that range from resource-constrained wireless access points, smart meters, medical devices and consumer electronics with as little as 64MB of system memory to large, complex systems like automotive in-vehicle infotainment systems, intelligent routers and switches, and next generation server platforms with 72GB or more of system memory running applications with millions of lines of code, hundreds of concurrent threads, and dozens of processes.
The ARM Connected Community is a global network of companies aligned to provide a complete solution, from design to manufacture and end use, for products based on the ARM architecture. ARM offers a variety of resources to Community members, including promotional programs and peer-networking opportunities that enable a variety of ARM Partners to come together to provide end-to-end customer solutions. Visitors to the ARM Connected Community have the ability to contact members directly through the website.
“The Connected Community is all about companies working together to provide the most complete solutions in the shortest possible time. By joining the Community, which now comprises more than 1,000 companies, Parallocity increases the large portfolio of skills, products and services that are centered around the ARM architecture, and currently available to developers worldwide,” said Lori Kate Smith, Sr. Manager Community Programs for ARM.
Parallocity is a key player in the $2B Automated Software Quality (ASQ) industry. Its Zeus Virtual Machine (ZVM) Dynamic Analysis Framework automates the detection of hard-to-find concurrency defects, memory errors, and memory leaks while providing comprehensive analytics for highly complex, single- and multi-threaded applications, loadable kernel modules, and device drivers.
