Aonix and Concurrent Sign Joint Marketing Agreement for Real-Time Linux with Java Software Solutions.

Companies Collaborate to Provide Richer and More Productive Software Engineering

BIRMINGHAM, United Kingdom -- Aonix[R], the provider of the PERC[R] real-time solutions for embedded Java developers, today announced that they have entered into a joint marketing agreement with Concurrent. Under the terms of the Agreement, the companies will collaborate closely in support of the growing number of customers in the real-time computing market that desire modernization of their mission-critical software with Java technology. The memorandum of understanding signed by the companies will culminate in the delivery of solutions from Aonix and Concurrent that will leverage the power of Aonix's PERC real-time virtual machine and tools on Concurrent's real-time Linux operating systems: SUSE[R] Linux Enterprise Real Time and RedHawk[TM] Linux[R].

First introduced nine years ago, PERC is the most widely used real-time Virtual Machine available for Java developers, with fielded installations in telecommunications, telematics, avionics, deep space exploration, and office automation applications. PERC supports a variety of target processors including PowerPC, XScale, ARM, and Intel x86 architectures. PERC Ultra is the industry-leading real-time virtual machine, featuring the predictable performance critically needed for complex embedded applications requiring J2SE[TM] support. PERC Pico is a ground-breaking technology designed for hard real-time applications requiring fast execution, small footprint, and access to low-level devices, offering Java developers performance comparable to that of C/C++.

Concurrent is a leading provider of time-critical Linux operating system technology and integrated computer solutions for mission-critical applications. Concurrent's popular real-time Linux operating systems (SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time and RedHawk Linux), are rapidly becoming the de facto standard in real-time computing for those looking to stay ahead of the curve in this constantly evolving age of information delivery. RedHawk Linux is compatible with Red Hat[R] Enterprise Linux 4. SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time is the real-time version of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10. Both provide fast response to external events, optimized interprocess communication with high I/O throughput needed for time-critical applications and a guarantee that user applications can respond to external events in less than 30 microseconds on a dedicated processor.

"Aonix PERC meets the stringent requirements of resource-constrained or large, complex hard real-time applications, as those developed by our most demanding customers," said Gary Beerman, Director of Real-Time Marketing at Concurrent. "The capability of the PERC real-time virtual machine and strength of the Aonix technical team will enable us to respond to the hard real-time and mission-critical markets we serve."

"Concurrent technologists are uniquely proficient in providing complete and effective real-time solutions to their customers," stated Gary Cato, Aonix Manager of Strategic Alliances. "They recognized the value of partnering with Aonix to address the expanding demand for hard real-time Java[TM] solutions, and we're gratified to know they selected Aonix PERC Java virtual machine. This combination provides a significant advantage to Concurrent and their customers."

Aonix's PERC real-time virtual machine supported on RedHawk real-time Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time are immediately available. PERC Ultra is available for Linux, Windows, and Solaris hosts and supports a wide variety of processor architectures and real-time operating systems. PERC development tools are available at no charge. Maintenance contracts start at $3000 for a single user. Contact Concurrent for additional RedHawk real-time Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time information.
