Java Real Time System News

 
Two interesting pieces of news today from the Java Real-Time System team.

First, a division of Reuters PLC has selected the Sun Java Real-Time System (Java RTS) to develop and deploy market-facing products. 

Sun Java RTS is a software product that provides a high-level development platform for creating applications, which require absolute execution predictability - such as those Reuters provides for the financial markets information and technology space.

Reuters is deploying Sun Java RTS on Solaris 10, which enables Java RTS applications to take full advantage of multi-core and multi-processor environments, as well as providing world-class security, performance, and reliability.

More details are available in the press release.

Since Sun is a strong proponent of developer & customer choice, the Java RTS team also want it to be a multi-platform solution. The second piece of news is that Sun Java Real-Time System 2.1 is now in early access.

The big feature for 2.1 is that it will support Linux. The two Linux distributions that are being tested with the early access version are:

    \* SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10
    \* Red Hat Enterprise MRG 1.0 )

Dave Therkelsen has more info on the early access for Java RTS for Linux on his blog.

And you can download the early access version of Java RTS 2.1 here.

Sun Helps Reuters' Humanitarian News Website Serve Information to NGOs, Nonprofits and Journalists

AlertNet, a humanitarian online news network (www.alertnet.org), will optimize its capabilities to provide information around global humanitarian initiatives and emergencies through new technology provided by Sun Microsystems. AlertNet is a project of the Reuters Foundation, the non-profit arm of the global news agency.

AlertNet has a network of 400 contributing humanitarian organizations and attracts upwards of 3 million users a year. The site needed a more flexible and dynamic IT infrastructure to improve access to information that relief agencies, journalists and the wider public need to respond during natural and man-made disasters. The combination of servers, software and services deployed by Sun Microsystems will help to better manage the spike in user traffic when a disaster occurs. The Sun infrastructure will also help provide AlertNet with the capabilities to become an online meeting place in the future where users can share experiences, commentary and feedback. With this expanded web presence, AlertNet can continue its mission to support and raise awareness of fast-moving humanitarian crises and to provide early warning of future emergencies worldwide.

AlertNet will consolidate from the current 13 servers to 11 energy-sipping Sun Fire™ T2000 eco responsible servers running the Solaris™ 10 Operating System (OS). The implementation will also include a disaster recovery solution. Sun will provide a dedicated team to provide in-kind consulting services focused on project implementation, technology design and systems integration expertise. The project is expected to take up to eight months and will enable the site to make big strides into new services and audience numbers.
