Canonical today announced that for Intel Core processors that support Timing Coordinated Computing (TCC) and Time Sensitive Networking (IEEE TSN), the launch of optimized real-time Ubuntu kernel.
Canonical announced in February this year, the purchase of an Ubuntu Pro subscription, using the code name Jammy Jellyfish Ubuntu 22.04 LTS users to provide real-time Ubuntu kernel.
The Ubuntu real-time kernel is built on the out-of-tree PREEMPT_RT patched Linux kernel and is available exclusively for x86_64 and AArch64 hardware.
With it, Canonical hopes to further support the use of Ubuntu in telecoms / 5G equipment and other industrial systems with low-latency requirements, delivering performance, guaranteed ultra-low latency and security for critical infrastructure.
Canonical has now optimized the Ubuntu real-time kernel for Intel CPUs, providing end-to-end security and reliability for enterprises to leverage the power of Linux for a wide range of deployments across telecoms workloads, factory-floor automation systems and life-saving medical devices.
Canonical said its optimized real-time Ubuntu kernel for Intel SoCs will drive innovation, simplify operations, improve efficiency and deliver optimal productivity.
Intel TSN support ensures processing and network prioritization for time-sensitive applications and workloads, while Intel TCC support prioritizes cache, memory and network access for real-time workloads.
