SERVOMEX SELECTS QNX TO POWER GAS ANALYSIS FOR SAFETY-CRITICAL ENVIRONMENTS
QNX technology brings unique combination of scalability and reliability to analyzers used in hazardous conditions.
Ottawa, ON - April 12, 2016 - QNX Software Systems Limited, a subsidiary of BlackBerry Limited, today announced that Servomex Group, a world leader in gas analysis technology, has chosen the QNXreg; Neutrinoreg; Realtime OS to power its next generation of gas analyzers.
For 60 years, Servomex gas analyzers have helped control emissions, optimize processes, and ensure operational safety in industries such as electricity generation, oil and gas refining, semiconductor manufacturing, chemical production, and iron and steel production. To power its next generation of analyzers, Servomex needed a high-performance OS that has the flexibility to support an array of market-specific applications and the reliability to be deployed in safety-critical environments.
Servomex offers an immense range of gas analyzers, and we needed an OS that could scale effortlessly across product lines, regardless of feature set or target industry, said Dr. Stephen Firth, Business Development Manager, Global EPC sales, Servomex. QNX Neutrino not only provided the scalability we were looking for, but allowed us to create a modular, future-ready software architecture that can quickly support new product features or address new market opportunities.
Reliability was a key requirement for Servomex. Many of their products are deployed in hot, hazardous conditions where they must operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, without field maintenance or human intervention.
We build gas analyzers for tough, safety-critical environments that demand high levels of accuracy and system availability. To satisfy these demands, our products need an OS designed from the ground up for dependability - another reason why QNX Neutrino, with its fault-resilient microkernel design, has proven to be an ideal choice for our next-generation products, said Dr. Firth.
For more than three decades, QNX Software Systems has helped developers build a massive range of industrial monitoring and control solutions - everything from power generation systems to autonomous warehouse robots, said John Wall, Senior Vice President and Head of QNX Software Systems. The inherent scalability and reliability of our OS architecture brings unique value to the gas analysis industry, and we are honored that Servomex is standardizing on QNX technology for their new product lines.

Besides, I’ve been wanting to write this post ever since I read some articles on Google’s Chrome OS, around the time right after my old blog vaporized. So there’s a couple of buzzwords to hopefully sucker you into clicking the ‘more’ button and actually reading the article – It’s about Google’s upcoming Chrome OS and it’s implications for the web, the desktop and the browser, as well as why desktop evolution can take an altern...01.04.2011 vCenter Operations vCenter Operations Posted by Ramin SayarVP Product Management & Marketing, Enterprise Management At VMware we understand it’s not enough just to build a dynamic, virtualized infrastructure – you also need to manage it.

But what about non-Linux? Consider the developer base for KDE. I'd guess that it is about 95% Linux users. That's just a guess and I don't know of any effective way to refine that guess, but based on who I know within the community, I feel that's reasonable. So, working with that guess: of the 240 committers the last 15.09.2008 Aaron Seigo (aseigo): On KDE4 Performance Andreas Pakulat recently blogged about performance issues with KDE 4.1 on his new desktop system. While I agree with some of the comments on that blog entry that his blog would've been better off on the kde-devel or even the kde-core-devel mailing list, since he's uncorked the genie I figured I may as well offer some commentary on the matter for the blogosphere. It's probably useful since it's an issue a lot of people are running into, and it's not fun when you do.A Line in the SandFirst, I'd like to discuss what constitutes an acceptable experience with KDE 4.

Carla Schroder wrote an editorial piece this week on Linux Today (a website I enjoy and frequent daily via their RSS feeds) entitled Editor's Note: What is User-friendly, Really?. In it, Carla claims to be "90% satisfied" with KDE3 and "60% satisfied" with KDE SC 4.3. Why? "KDE 4 sacrifices customizability and efficiency for glitz. [...] There is a trend to dumb Linux down in a fruitless attempt to appeal to Jane and Joe Sixpack. Which is wasted effort, because in doing so computer-savvy users are being ignored and frustrated, and Jane and Joe Sixpack don't care anyway." What's interesting ab...
