Real-Time OS Sings With A High Performance Chorus

Jaluna-1 is a real-time component suite designed for carrier-grade projects requiring high performance and high availability. It is based on Sun Microsystems' Chorus microkernel operating system (OS).

Integrated within Jaluna-1 is the C5 Real-Time microkernel with modular scheduler, memory management, communication, synchronization, time services, and interrupt management. Based on FreeBSD 4.1, the RT-POSIX system layer incorporates high availability, hot-restart, error confinement support. Among the target processors are x86, PowerPC, and Sparc within CompactPCI-based architectures. Host development systems include Linux RedHat 7.3 and Solaris 8.

Jaluna-1 is royalty-free. The Carrier Grade Edition is available on a per seat basis. The Developer Edition is a free download and is available as an open-source project on SourceForge.
