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 OS."

"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."
