Trango Virtual Processors was founded in 2004 by Pierre Coulombeau and Fabrice Devaux as a subsidiary of ELSYS Design group. Trango's purpose was to develop a real-time mobile hypervisor. It was acquired by VMware in October 2008.[1]


Trango developed a mobile hypervisor that supported ARM architectures (ARMv5 and ARMv6) and MIPS architectures, and could run Symbian OS, WinCE, and Linux mobile operating systems, and a supporting integrated development environment (IDE).

VMware rebranded Trango's product as the VMware Mobile Virtualization Platform, which was later renamed VMware Horizon Mobile.[2][3]


Trango Virtual Processors competes with other providers of virtualization software, including VirtualLogix's VLX, Open Kernel Labs's OKL4, as well as open source hypervisors such as L4 and Xen.
