Motorola heeft een eigen Linux distributie in mekaar getimmerd voor gebruik in embedded computers voor de telecom industrie. Motorola zegt met 'HA Linux', wat staat voor High Availability Linux, uptimes van 99.999% te kunnen garanderen:
Motorola Computer Group (MCG), part of Motorola's (NYSE: MOT - news) Integrated Electronics Systems Sector (IESS), Monday announced its advanced High Availability Linux® (HA Linux) offering, strengthening its position as the leader in high-availability embedded computing platforms for the telecommunications industry.
MCG's HA Linux -- with hot swap capability and support for system platforms based on Intel® and PowerPC® architectures -- is the first Linux offering for carrier-grade networking, wireless and Internet applications that require 99.999% availability (5NINES). 5NINES availability equates to 5 minutes or less of downtime per year, both planned and unplanned.
With its very low cost and freely available source code, Linux is being rapidly adopted as the platform of choice for new telecommunications applications.
Until now, however, a HA Linux solution for applications that require near constant uptime -- such as Operation Administration & Maintenance (OA&M) platforms, call servers, IP gateways, gatekeepers and home location registers -- was not available. MCG has recognized this need and filled it with its advanced HA Linux offering.
