RTI Connext 5.0 & Infrastructure Community Business Model


Published on

RTI has always been known for its industry-leading technology and expertise. Now there's another reason to choose RTI: it's free.

Introducing RTI Infrastructure Community (IC), a free, easy way to adopt RTI DDS - the world's leading implementation of the standard. The IC provides two options for using RTI Connext across your organization:

IC Licensing - Two Options

Open Community Source Licensing - unlike competitors, RTI offers the latest version of its DDS, free-of-charge. It includes optional support and library source codes and binaries for Linux and Windows. it is currently available and free for source use, development or deployment.

2. Commercial Licensing- for organizations interested in advanced products and tools, RTI offers an optional Commercial license. The IC Commercial license is currently available, royalty-free and includes the entire RTI Connext product family, basic tools and utilities, ability to license additional platforms, a full commercial warranty and optional annual support package. The only charge is a low per-developer license fee. Pricing for the IC Commercial license starts at $1,000 per developer (US pricing).

Qualifying for an IC

RTI is receiving positive response from its customers with more than 20 organizations - ranging from commercial enterprises to research institutions - qualifying for and adopting the IC licensing model including AUDI, Johns Hopkins University APL and Integrated Clinical Environment (ICE).

Any organization interested in using a common software infrastructure across programs, systems or applications qualifies for an IC, including government standards communities, companies or corporate divisions, development sites and multi-company joint efforts.

  • Interoperability reduces the integration burden:Components that are directly interoperable don’t need to be integratedComponents that provide a well-defined interoperability interface can be easily composed without having to do any reverse engineering or code inspection
  • The IC license supports the OA drivers
  • FACE = Future Airborne Capabilities EnvironmentUCS = UAV Control Segment ArchitectureCOE = Army Common Operating EnvironmentICE = Integrated Clinical Environment
  • DDS is pub/sub: distribute information
  • Scalability enhancements include the following.Enhanced writer-side filtering, now supporting unlimited remote readersGreatly reduced gap and heartbeat messagesOptimized writer-side filtering that is independent of the number of remote readers
  • Connext Tools 5.0 features a new Administration Console. This is a centralized tool for monitoring and administering your distributed system. In a single view, you can monitor the health information of your components, the CPU and memory usage of each participating host, and log messages from all applications using RTI distributed logger. The Administration Console also allows you to remotely administer other RTI components such as Routing Service. You can pause / resume individual routes, retrieve currently running configuration, and even apply modifications to the configuration remotely. These features help reduce administrative overhead by cutting down time and effort required to understand your system.
  • This is an architectural view of the product line. Again, all of the products are built around the RTI DataBus.Another beauty of a data-centric architecture is that services can be plugged into the bus in the same way that a customer’s application can be. So, in addition to just providing the core messaging capability, we can also offer value added services and tools that customers can take advantage of in both their development environments as well as in deployed systems.

What’s Important in a Model?• Generate low-friction viral adoption – Free use for early projects – No legal & operational red tape• Support healthy vendors – Limit unfettered competition from services companies that don’t drive the product. (And may be foreign, undesired.) – For those who can pay, provide good reason to pay• Encourage speculative vendor investment – Build product the broad market needs – Invest in features, accessibility, usability, quality• Retain IP control – No forced copyleft of customer code – Encourage some mechanism to ensure code provenance• Drive efficiency and low cost – Encourage single code base and stable team – Stop the “free puppy” syndrome; no local branches
