SuSE, openSUSE Novell today announced the availability of SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10, "the only open source, enterprise-class real-time operating system available in the market today". Novell says: "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"

Member since:

I read up on Real Time it sounds pretty solid, in transactional processing a second to respond is too slow. Plus, with a product like this in a mission critical scenario it would make sense to purchase the highest service level package on at least ONE server so you can have support if/when needed.

With the acquisition of SuSE Linux I think Novell is on the right track, they need to really market these products for the entire Enterprise to the desktop workstation.
