Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Intel's Wind River software division is out this week with a new embedded Linux release that adds new carrier grade and workflow capabilities to the platform.

"Wind River entered the Linux space in 2004 as an optional alternative embedded operating system to its own VxWorks embedded system. With Wind River Linux 4.0, the company is building on some of its past systems by extending real-time Linux capabilities. One such real-time capability comes in the form of the preempt_rt Linux kernel.

""Wind River Linux has supported PREEMPT_RT in various configurations since Wind River Linux 2.0 platforms," Paul Anderson, vice president of marketing and strategy for Linux products at Wind River told InternetNews.com. "We've continued this, but extended our support to include ARM and MIPS reference configurations. Wind River has integrated the latest stabilized features in the preempt_rt tree into our 2.6.34 kernel."
