Red Hat Speeds Up Real-Time Linux

Filed under
Linux

Red Hat is aiming for lowered latency and improved performance with the second update of the year to its real-time Linux platform.

The Linux vendor's new MRG 1.2 (short for Messaging, Real-Time, Grid) release includes new tools and improved technology designed to better enhance the OS's value for customers who rely on real-time performance.

A real-time operating system differs from other OSes in that its overall latency is lower, and system actions occur at deterministic intervals. Providing deterministic real-time performance is all about enabling actions to occur within the same amount of time, every time -- a feature that is critical for Red Hat's (NYSE: RHT) U.S military, financial services and telco customers.

With MRG 1.2, Red Hat is publishing new performance benchmarks.
