Real-Time Ubuntu Optimized for Intel Core Processors
Back in February earlier this year, Canonical had already made headlines with the release of the real-time Ubuntu 22.04 LTS for users subscribed to Ubuntu Pro. Now, Canonical delivers optimized real-time Ubuntu kernels for Intel core processors.
This solution enables enterprises to enjoy the power of optimized Linux running on Intel hardware for various applications, including telco workloads, medical equipment, and factory floor automation systems. In addition, it is fully supported on Intel Core processors featuring Intel Time Coordinated Computing (TCC) and Intel Time Sensitive Networking (TSN).
The integration of Intel TSN support ensures that time-sensitive applications and workloads receive the highest processing and network priority. On the other hand, Intel TCC support prioritizes access to cache, memory, and networking resources, particularly tailored to meet the needs of real-time workloads.
One of the most compelling aspects of this solution is its compatibility with the long-term supported Ubuntu 22.04 LTS operating system series. Canonical promises to provide package updates for the real-time Ubuntu kernel on Intel processors for up to a remarkable 10-year period, ensuring that enterprises can maintain peak performance and security for an extended duration.
By optimizing Ubuntu for Intel Core processors, Canonical seeks a secure, high-performing, and scalable solution that meets the diverse needs of businesses. The optimized real-time Ubuntu kernel for Intel System-on-Chips (SoCs) will drive innovation, optimize operations, and significantly boost efficiency and productivity.
The optimized real-time Ubuntu is now fully prepared for production use on 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. Additionally, Canonical plans to reveal support for more platforms shortly. For businesses and developers eager to explore the potential of real-time Ubuntu on Intel SoCs, head to the official website.
