Open Architecture Linux Operating System.
RadiSys Corp and LynuxWorks, are to develop an Open Architecture High-Availability Linux[sim] system targeted for telecom and embedded system applications which require "five-nines" or better availability. "Five-nines" availability refers to system availability greater than 99.999% of the time, implying 5 minutes or less down time per year.
RadiSys and LynuxWorks software will function through open, standard interfaces. The key specification that makes this possible is IPMI, which has been adopted as the standard platform management interface for CompactPCI systems. By using IPMI for all platform management functions, the High-Availability BlueCat Linux system can operate on any manufacturer's platform that conforms to this specification.
