Real-time Linux gains real-time JVM

Oct 11, 2006 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 3 views

Real-time JVM (Java virtual machine) specialist Aonix and real-time Linux specialist Concurrent Computer Corp. have formed a joint development and marketing partnership. The deal leverages the combination of Aonix's PERC real-time JVM and tools, along with Concurrent's RedHawk Linux and SUSE-based real-time offerings for multi-processor x86 systems, the companies say.

The agreement calls for close collaboration on customer support, as well as the delivery of products by both Aonix and Concurrent.

Aonix claims PERC to be “the most widely used real-time Virtual Machine available for Java developers,” with customers in markets that include telecommunications, telematics, avionics, deep space exploration, and office automation.

Concurrent's “shielded processor” real-time Linux technology is available in the company's own Red Hat based RedHawk Linux offering. Additionally, the technology, along with Concurrent's Nightstar tools, was recently ported to SUSE Linux, and was subsequently licensed by Novell for use in a forthcoming SUSE Enterprise Linux Real-Time product.

Gary Beerman, director of real-time marketing at Concurrent, stated, “Aonix PERC meets the stringent requirements of resource-constrained or large, complex hard real-time applications.”

Gary Cato, Aonix manager of strategic alliances, stated, “Concurrent recognized the expanding demand for hard real-time Java solutions.”


PERC for RedHawk or SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time is available now, Aonix says, with free development tools. Prices start at $3,000 for a single-user maintenance contract.
