RedHawk Linux 4.2: A New Version of Concurrent's Real-Time Operating System for Mission-Critical Applications

Concurrent announced the release of RedHawk Linux 4.2, a new version of its popular real-time operating system for mission-critical applications.

The latest Intel quad-core processors are supported, providing more computing power in smaller packages and expanded performance scalability. RedHawk Linux 4.2 also supports Infiniband, optional global file system, high-availability NFS (HA-NFS), and nVidia and other updated third-party drivers. The operating system is built on the Linux kernel and incorporates many of the accepted Ingo Molnar real-time patches, overall performance and stability enhancements, and improved user application space features unavailable in older kernels. Compatible with Red Hat Enterprise 4 Update 4, RedHawk Linux version 4.2 includes support for running the 32-bit version of RedHawk on AMD Opteron based systems in addition to the 64-bit version already supported. Hundreds of installations of RedHawk Linux are deployed worldwide, including within the U.S. Navy Aegis Open Architecture (AOA) CR2 program and Airbus. Technical experts from Concurrent will be available to answer questions on RedHawk Linux 4.2 and other Concurrent solutions at the ITEC 2007 Conference and Exhibition.
