The need for real-time quality of service (QoS) has been around for years. However, in the past, real-time solutions required custom-built hardware, proprietary real-time operating systems, and specialized skills in C, C++, or ADA. All of this has made the solutions expensive to create and maintain. With the industry now moving increasingly to open standards, IBM and Novell have recognized the opportunity to combine x86 hardware, Linux and WebSphere products to provide real-time response times.
IBM real-time technologies combine select IBM System x hardware that is optimized for real-time workloads with WebSphere Real Time for SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time for hard real-time QoS, and WebSphere Virtual Enterprise with WebSphere Real Time for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for differentiated soft real-time QoS. In this session, you will learn about these technologies and how to benefit from them.
