Linux demoed alongside RTOSes on Intel Core Duo

Jun 7, 2006 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

Jaluna has joined Intel's communications partner program, and demonstrated unmodified versions of Linux and various RTOSes (real-time OSes) running simultaneously on Intel's Core Duo architecture. The demonstration leverages Jaluna's OSware real-time virtualization technology, along with Intel Virtualization Technology hardware built into Core Single and Core Duo chips.

The demonstration took place this week at GlobalComm, a trade show focused on the telecommunications market. It shows how companies can “seamlessly move to multi-core CPUs,” Jaluna says.

Specifically, the demonstration consolidates “numerous single processor RTOSes” alongside Linux on two low-voltage Dual Core Intel Xeon processors clocked at 2.0 GHz. Each processor executes mobile phone infrastructure applications on a shared database, establishing that legacy software stacks “do not need to be re-architected in order to take advantage of Intel multi-core CPUs, while maintaining real-time performance bounds,” Jaluna says.

Additionally, Jaluna has joined Intel's Communications Alliance as an Affiliate member, a move that it says marks the first time the companies have worked together to align their product roadmaps and engineering teams.

Steve Price, product marketing director of Intel's infrastructure processor division, stated, “We chose to work with Jaluna because of their focus on and technology for real-time virtualization software for embedded devices.”

Michel Gien, executive vice president of corporate development at Jaluna, stated, “Intel Core microarchitecture is an industry-leading solution that has tremendous productivity gains for the networking infrastructure market. Adding Jaluna OSware real time virtualization enables customers to rapidly adopt the latest technology.”

Jaluna's NEP (network equipment provider) customers include Alcatel, which in November of last year began shipping a line of soft-switches based on a combination of Linux and legacy RTOSes.
