PrismTech Announces Release of Open Source OpenSplice Community Edition v6.4

Latest version of the most advanced and complete Data Distribution Service (DDS) middleware implementation now available to the Open Source community

Boston, MA, USA, March 20, 2014 – PrismTech™, a global leader in standards-based, performance-critical middleware, today announced the latest v6.4 update to the OpenSplice™ Community Edition. This update will provide access to the latest version of OpenSplice along with several innovations that improve usability, productivity and performance.

OpenSplice is the most advanced and complete Open Source implementation of the OMG Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-Time Systems standard and represents the state-of-the-art in real-time data sharing. It sets new levels of performance, robustness, scalability, fault-tolerance and portability (platform support). If you have a time-sensitive distributed application or a system that requires reliable and deterministic data-sharing, then OpenSplice v6.4 should be at the top of your list of enabling technologies.

Whether users are developing systems for mil/aero, simulation, smart energy, mobile healthcare, transportation, industrial applications (e.g. Real-time Machine to Machine (M2M)) or Internet connectivity, then OpenSplice v6.4 (with its extensive set of configurable Qualities of Service) is a key system enabler.  In the latest OpenSplice Community Edition v6.4 all of this is available to the user community as an LGPLv3 Open Source distribution.

The latest OpenSplice Community Edition features:

  • Significant performance improvements both in terms of latency as well as throughput making OpenSplice DDS v6.4 the fastest DDS implementation on the market.
  • TCP/IP support for the DDSI2 networking service, enabling data sharing with a TCP/IP endpoint, for example an application running in a Cloud-based datacenter.
  • The first GA implementation of the new DDS ISO C++ PSM (API) available on the market. The new C++ API greatly reduces the complexity of developing DDS applications, and improves efficiency and safety.

In addition, numerous other updates and improvements have been made to the code base since the previous v6.3 release including bug fixes and robustness improvements.

PrismTech also provides a comprehensive set of add-ons and world class commercial support for users where their business or mission-critical projects require guaranteed service levels.  The aligned code-base between the community and commercial editions allows for a seamless transition for the community to a fully supported release.

The OpenSplice Community Edition v6.4 is available for download from PrismTech’s website at: http://www.prismtech.com/dds-community/software-downloads.

PrismTech Announces the Release of OpenSplice Enterprise version 6.4

Boston, MA, USA – February 20, 2014 – PrismTech™, a global leader in standards-based, performance-critical middleware, today announced the release of OpenSplice™ Enterprise v6.4.

The latest OpenSplice Enterprise v6.4 features TCP/IP support for the DDSI2 networking service. It also provides GA support for the ISO C++ PSM (API) as an alternative to the previous 2006 C++ API. Both TCP/IP and ISO C++ PSM are included as part of OpenSplice v6.4 core.

OpenSplice Enterprise v6.4 includes updates to the Record and Replay service which allows users to select a binary-storage as an optional alternative to the previously supported xml-based story format. RnR service importing/exporting storages are now significantly faster compared to the v6.3 release.

Other additions include support for the Raspberry Pi single board computer running Linux and a new OpenSplice Enterprise Evaluation and Benchmarking Guide with supporting benchmarking examples.
