Torizon helps us to monitor and maintain our devices at customer sites without physically accessing them. This is extremely valuable to us a startup, which is constantly improving it products to meet customers satisfaction.

Streamline Processes

Torizon allows you to simply implement Continuous Integration and Deployment Processes (CI/CD) for faster and lower-risk development cycles.

No Chaos

Never have a device in an unknown state again. Immutability is key, and it is built into the design. With Remote Updates, either the update is successful, or a rollback happens.

Full Stack OTA Updates

Torizon enables updates for all your Software, from Bootloader over OS to your application, with a flexible dependency model.

Smart Delta Updates

The devices smartly download only the binary diffs for the updated packages, reducing the update size to a minimum and saving you bandwidth and money.

How Is It Secure?

Torizon Cloud (formerly Torizon Platform) is built with security in mind from the ground up. All features are integrated into the security concept and not just bolt-on. That results in a simple streamlined solution for you and the reduction of attack vectors for your product.

Automotive-Grade Security Built-In

The Torizon ecosystems, from the base operating system to the cloud services, are built following the proven Uptane standard, which is mainstream in automotive applications. All this security is out of the box and maintained by Toradex. Focus on your application, and let us do the rest!

Integrated With a Frequently-Updated OS

The integrated Remote Updates feature is tightly coupled with Torizon OS (formerly TorizonCore), a ready-to-use Embedded Linux distribution for industrial settings. This OS is fully maintained and tested by Toradex, with frequent releases for security patches and new features.

Securely Manage Multi-User Accounts

Following the Uptane automotive standard, Torizon allows you to delegate roles to different accounts, permitting them to manage devices on your behalf - from fleet monitoring to updating devices and troubleshooting issues remotely - with granular permissions.

The Torizon OS integration with our IDE of choice (Visual Studio Code) for debugging and deploying software to the iMX8 has been a great help. Finally, the support organization at Toradex has been outstanding. They are friendly, very responsive and continue working issues until a resolution is provided.

How Is It Reliable?

The team behind Torizon is very experienced in building Software and Hardware for critical applications in Medical, Industrial, and Transportation Systems. These systems require uninterrupted 24/7 functionality over many years in challenging environments. Torizon's focus on reliability is evident in our technology choices, processes, and testing, thereby making sure you can trigger updates worry-free and never end up with a bricked device.

Multilevel Fault-Tolerant Recovery System: Always Have a Responsive Device

Torizon is fault-tolerant by design. With our implementation of the Uptane standard, your device is always in a known state. If anything goes wrong in any software layer, Torizon will catch that problem, report it to you, and automatically roll back to the latest good state. Integrated Device Monitoring lets you observe your product in the field.

Resistant to Unreliable Networks and Power Cuts

We understand that network quality or power supply may not be 100% reliable. That's why we built an over-the-air update solution that will not brick your device in case of a bad connection or a sudden power cut. One key technology to achieve this is OSTree, sometimes called git for file systems, which outperforms A/B updates in many aspects.

Torizon OTA is very easy to manage and use, even for a non-technical. The support team has been a great help and have handled all requests very fast.


Torizon Is Much More Than Remote Updates

Remote OTA Updates is one of the Torizon's features. Torizon simplifies your IoT Linux product development and deployment in all stages.

Get Secure Remote Access to Your Devices

With Remote Access, you can connect to a shell on a remote device and issue commands at fleet level, securely and out-of-the-box.

Maintained Ready-to-Use Embedded Linux for Critical Application

The Torizon OS comes with the Docker Engine installed. Leverage 100s of readily-available containers with your application.

Monitor Your Devices to Preemptively Detect Issues

Built-in Customizable Device Monitoring provides you visibility of your fleet. Quickly analyze the status of the dashboards.
Toradex Ready-to-use Runtimes

Toradex provides frequently updated and maintained, ready-to-use containers and Torizon OS releases. Everything hardware-accelerated, out-of-the-box, so you can focus on developing your application and customizing the OS instead of the infrastructure to support them.

For Developers

Easily transform the provided container images and Torizon OS into your applications and your custom OS using Toradex-provided tools: our Visual Studio and VSCode extensions, and the TorizonCore Builder.

For Managers

Immutability is key when managing many devices. It allows you to guarantee quality and reliability, even after many update cycles. With Torizon, all your devices are in a defined state - always.

Torizon Cloud

Torizon lets you develop your product in an agile and iterative fashion. The seamlessly integrated remote update features make it possible to deploy new software easily.
