TenAsys and Real-Time Systems team up to greatly improve secure system consolidation and determinism
TenAsys, experienced provider of real-time operating system software and services, teams up with Real-Time Systems GmbH (RTS), a recognized Intel co-development partner for hypervisor technology. This strategic partnership results in an exceptionally versatile PC-based software platform for a secure, consolidated system of disparate workloads addressing strict deterministic application needs.
Flexible consolidation with hard real-time
The out-of-the-box RTS Hypervisor for x86 architecture unlocks the full potential of today’s multicore processors. It enables TenAsys’ INtime RTOS applications to run alongside a wide spectrum of different operating systems and varying workloads – in hard real-time at minimum jitter, avoiding any overhead from virtualization. The software platform allows designers to make use of the latest protocols and CPU technologies like Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) or Intel Time Coordinated Computing (TCC). Besides enhancing system performance and reducing total system power consumption, a consolidated system solution increases flexibility in communication and enables shared use of USB, NVMe, and AHCI devices.
Security without compromises
INtime distributed RTOS has been paravirtualized to operate within the RTS Hypervisor. The hardware-assisted virtualization technology securely shields real-time applications from other operating systems. This not only greatly improves security; it also allows to reboot general-purpose operating systems while real-time applications on INtime keep running during the process.
“INtime for Windows has been one of the most popular Windows real-time environments for many years. With INtime Distributed RTOS support in our solution, even more designers around the globe can now benefit from the RTS Hypervisor, which is developing more and more into the de facto standard for industrial automation and medical applications,” stated Gerd Lammers, founder of Real-Time Systems.
For qualified applicants, Real-Time Systems and TenAsys provide a pre-integrated evaluation version free of charge.
