Real Time Systems - ALL APPLICATIONS ON ONE HARDWARE PLATFORM

Real Time Systems - ALL APPLICATIONS ON ONE HARDWARE PLATFORM

The RTS Hypervisor enables work-load consolidation of both real-time and non-real-time operating systems on a single x86 based platform. Unlike traditional virtualization, we partition and allocate the hardware for each work-load and provide a "privileged" mode for real-time operating systems that guarantee zero impact to determinism while adding zero jitter. This is instrumental for work-loads such as robotic controllers managing motion control where minimum jitter is required. And, our hypervisor is designed for easy setup and configuration for any work-load consolidation scenario. This equates to deterministic real-time applications taking advantage of all the benefits of virtualization immediately, without costly implementation projects.
