SAN JOSE, Calif. – Operating system vendor Enea AB (Stockholm, Sweden) announced at the DESIGN West exhibition that it is now supplying Enea Linux together with some complementary technologies.
Enea Linux is a Yocto-based Linux distribution available with customized services and support. In addition, Enea is launching means to enhance the performance and applicability of Linux to networking infrastructure.
Light-Weight Runtime Threads (LWRT) provides improved real-time characteristics such as scheduling, message passing and resource management functionality.
The Enea Packet Acceleration foundation (PAX) will be a modular, graph structured framework designed for high performance hardware-accelerated packet processing. Virtualization is provided through the micro kernel based Enea Hypervisor.
"With Enea Linux and our innovative value-added technologies we have a powerful solution for addressing the Linux and realtime operating system challenges that customers building the next generation networking infrastructure are faced with," said Anders Lidbeck, President and CEO of Enea, in a statement. "Working closely with leading telecom manufacturers we have tailored a Linux distribution that meets the industry's key requirements on flexibility, reliability and performance."
Enea Linux is available for evaluation on Freescale P4080, LSI ACP3448 and AMCC PPC440 processors. The Enea Polyhedra relational database system, the Enea LINX inter-process communications service, and the Enea Gateway (connecting Enea Optima tool suite with Enea’s RTOS targets) will be integrated in the first Enea Linux release.
