Led by Rachel Taylor, co-founder and CEO, Nubix provides tiny containers and tiny services for businesses to develop once and deploy anywhere. Its real-time operating system (RTOS) container and services solution for MCUs makes the development and deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) and edge applications possible empowering developers to easily analyze and take action on data being generated in real-time on a sensor device. Microcontainer technology enables containerized applications to be safely distributed to devices and executed by the container runtime. The application logic can be updated and redeployed without any updates or changes to the container OS, enabling smaller, faster and less risky updates.
