BW: LynxOS and BlueCat Linux Supported By GoAhead Management Software Suite…

“LynuxWorks, Inc., formerly Lynx Real-Time Systems, today
announced that the GoAhead Software, Inc. suite of off-the-shelf
service availability software for Internet infrastructure devices
supports both the LynuxWorks’ LynxOS real-time operating system
(RTOS) and the BlueCat Linux operating system. The partnership
expands the ability of OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) to
provide increased availability and functionality on LynxOS and
BlueCat Linux.”

“GoAhead Software’s Service Availability solutions enable
Internet infrastructure devices to be highly available and
self-reliant.
The product suite consists of GoAhead
HighAvailability, GoAhead FieldUpgrader and GoAhead WebServer
software solutions. GoAhead HighAvailability is a system-based
solution that enables 99.999 percent (“five nines”) availability by
providing all the core functions for a true service availability
solution: system data collection, fault and performance management,
Web access and control, remote upgrading and high availability.
GoAhead FieldUpgrader is a device-initiated, scalable solution that
provides automatic field upgrades of software or firmware by
periodically “phoning home” via the Internet to an upgrade server.
GoAhead WebServer is an open source, embedded Web server that
allows products to be accessed from a remote browser.”

“LynxOS, the cornerstone of the LynuxWorks product offerings, is
a Linux-compatible, POSIX-conformant hard RTOS that combines
performance, reliability, openness and scalability for embedded
applications. BlueCat Linux is part of the LynuxWorks product suite
that allows embedded systems development on open source Linux and
provides compatibility with LynxOS at the application
interface.”
