Enea, a software and services company dealing in communication-driven products, launched a new Enea (News - Alert) Multicore Migration Platform (MMP) designed to ease multicore systems developers’ task to transform legacy applications from unicore to multicore preserving investment and at the same time realizing the use of the latest high-performance multicore devices.
Enea recently added Timesys Linux to its product portfolio in order to gain ability to build solutions-oriented platforms targeting multicore migration, development and performance. By integrating its RTOS, hypervisors, interprocess communications technology and development tools into the Linux framework, Enea can deliver complete, highly integrated platforms to developers that solve many of the complex challenges presented by multicore processing.
The new MMP supposedly blends best practices and powerful software all backed by Enea product and professional services to meet the direct concerns of equipment providers.
Officials with the company exclaimed that if users are interested in migration of legacy applications to the latest multicore devices, then they should look into Enea’s proven multicore migration platform. Enea has the solution that can help in various objectives of a company such as device differentiation, bill of materials reduction by consolidation of processing devices, or increased performance through the use of multicore.
The company added that the new MMP addresses a number of critical challenges in migrating to multicore such as deploying a legacy OS on a multicore device, identifying and dealing with shared state, partitioning and load balancing issues, profiling and performance optimization, using new HW features together with legacy SW, live guest OS and SW upgrades. The platform is also designed to support bare-metal execution environments in conjunction with legacy OS and SW.Danny Mulligan, marketing director for Freescale Semiconductor’s networking processor division stated that they are pleased that Enea is tackling the critical issue of simplifying the migration to multicore processors. They expect that this platform will reduce the barriers of multicore adoption and provide customers with the information and technology to more rapidly take advantage of Freescale’s (News - Alert) latest QorIQ products.
