Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"At IDG's LinuxWorld Conference this week, TimeSys Corp. Tuesday
announced several enhancements to its tools and to platform support
for the TimeSys Linux/RT operating system distribution."
"Unlike other solutions that provide a small RTOS executive
beneath the Linux OS, the Resource Kernel within TimeSys Linux/RT
directly incorporates real-time technology into the Linux
"Thus the distribution supports fixed-priority scheduling (256
priorities), priority inheritance, high-resolution timers and
counters, and also offers a Temporal Firewall to provide guaranteed
Quality of Service (QoS) support. This enables existing
applications to be run as-is with their QoS parameters controlled
externally via the TimeSys Resource Manager."
