Novell Ships Suse Linux Enterprise Real Time 10

Nov 27, 2007

Novell today announced the availability of Suse Linux Enterprise Real Time 10, the latest version of Novell's enterprise-class, open source real-time operating system for running high-performance, time-sensitive, mission-critical applications.

With Suse Linux Enterprise Real Time 10, financial organizations can respond more rapidly to changing markets and new information, get greater application reliability and predictability, and identify and eliminate performance bottlenecks. This will allow them to increase revenue opportunities and improve service to their customers, even while reducing computing infrastructure costs.
"In order to win in today's increasingly competitive global markets, companies need to be able to respond quickly while delivering superior products and services," said Roger Levy, senior vice president and general manager of Open Platform Solutions for Novell. "Companies that leverage technology such as SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10 to improve responsiveness and availability of critical business services will be better able to compete and grow their own top-line revenues."
With Novell's real-time technology, customers can segment portions of their processors for high-priority mission-critical workloads, as well as ensure that other system processes and tasks do not interrupt them. That means these workloads deliver predictable performance in time-critical environments. Fully supported by Novell, Suse Linux Enterprise Real Time 10 is the only open source, enterprise-class real-time operating system available in the market today.
Enhancements to Suse Linux Enterprise Real Time 10 include the latest enterprise-hardened open source technologies that reduce system latency or delay and improve predictability, such as CPU shielding, priority inheritance, sleeping spinlocks, interrupt threads, high-resolution timers and the latest OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution for commodity high-speed interconnects, OFED 1.2.5. As a result, customers gain time advantage over competitors to make more money or avoid financial losses. They can also increase the availability of their mission-critical applications to ensure quality-of-service targets and service level agreements are met, even while cutting hardware costs.
