Motorola Inc. revealed that it has made an equity investment in VirtualLogix, a maker of virtualisation software for communications devices and infrastructure equipment. The company made the investment through its strategic venture capital arm, Motorola Ventures. Financial terms of the investment were not disclosed.

VirtualLogix's real-time virtualisation enables the mobility of applications from the desktop to devices, improves quality of service and security in an open mobile world, and is expected to bring a new generation of dynamic individual user experiences.

"As the mobile ecosystem grows increasingly complex, demand for simplified product designs that allow dynamic mobile experiences to run across multiple platforms will intensify," said Reese Schroeder, managing director, Motorola Ventures. "Virtualisation offers a solution to this complexity. Our investment in VirtualLogix will help accelerate the delivery of their technology to next-generation communications devices and infrastructure equipment."

"As virtualisation moves out from the datacenter and into everyday front-end connected devices, our connected world will require the delivery of efficient, secure and customisable user experiences," said Peter Richards, CEO of VirtualLogix. "To meet this demand, leading electronics manufacturers are looking to leverage the VirtualLogix technology to create products with improved security, manageability and customisation."

Motorola joins VirtualLogix's current investors Atlas Venture, Cisco Systems, DFJ Esprit, Index Ventures, Intel Capital and Texas Instruments.
