Vita Nuova Holdings

Vita Nuova Holdings Ltd is an English company based in York that provides technology for embedded systems and distributed applications based upon the unique operating system Inferno. It also distributes the Plan 9 operating system.

Inferno is a derivative of Plan 9, which was originally developed at Bell Labs by the creators of Unix and C, among others. Inferno is a small, efficient operating system used in embedded systems and distributed applications. In 2000, the founders of Vita Nuova Holdings Ltd obtained exclusive rights to the Inferno operating system.

The name of the company continues the association with Dante Alighieri, begun with the choice of "Inferno", at Bell Labs, as a name for the operating system: "La Vita Nuova", meaning "The New Life" in Italian, is the title of an early work by Dante.
