When Trust and Reliability are Paramount
While tough, rigorous design standards are built into the FlexStor platform, it’s third-party OEMs who ultimately stamp their name on the outside of the FlexStor product. Because of this arrange¬ment, trust and reliability are extremely important to the BDT brand name. So when the company needed an operating system of this caliber, it was easy to select Mentor’s Nucleus RTOS.
Nucleus Steps up to the Challenge
Because BDT was going to use an existing 32-bit processor and a similar application for FlexStor product line, it was critical that Nucleus step in and perform at a higher level without adding to its footprint size. With minimal lines of code and highly deterministic behavior, Nucleus was able to achieve what the company needed.
The Perfect Fit
Not only was BDT impressed with Nucleus size and performance, the company was also pleased to discover the many Nucleus middleware offerings (USB, Networking, Storage & Database), which fit perfectly into the FlexStor platform.
“The FlexStor platform is a testament to the robustness of Nucleus.”
