RTAI: Real-Time Application Interface

An introduction to RTAI for deterministic and preemptive real-time behaviour for Linux.
Future Developments

RTAI continues to grow and mature through the combined contributions of the DIAPM development team and those across the Internet who are encouraged by RTAI's flexible architecture, high performance and feature set. While this real-time Linux extension is very capable, stable and mature today, work is far from finished. The future holds many things, including:

  • VxWorks compatibility libraries

  • pSOS compatibility libraries

  • Enhanced development tools

  • Enhanced debug tools

  • Real-time Ethernet functionality

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
