Wasabi Introduces NetBSD Operating System for Next Generation Intel(R) IOP321 I/O Processor Based on Intel(R) XScale(TM) Technology

Feb 26, 2002, 00:00 ET from Wasabi Systems

    SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM - BOOTH #229D
 -- Wasabi Systems, the NetBSD Company, today announced its support for the
 Intel IOP321 I/O processor based on the Intel(R) XScale(TM) core.  NetBSD, the
 world's most portable operating system, runs on nearly fifty distinct
 architectures, representing fifteen CPU families.  In keeping with open source
 practices, the source code will be committed to the NetBSD source tree upon
 completion.
     "The combination of the high performance Intel IOP321 I/O processor based
 on the Intel XScale technology and the portable NetBSD operating system will
 benefit customers with faster time to market for networked storage solutions,"
 said Chris Croteau, director of marketing at Intel's I/O and Bridges Division.
     The announcement of the new I/O processor coincides with Wasabi's
 announcement of NetBSD performance enhancements for processors based on the
 Intel XScale Microarchitecture. The enhancements include acceleration of
 software RAID and support for the onboard performance monitoring facilities,
 adding to the advantages of NetBSD in storage applications.
     Wasabi also announced support for Team ASA's single board NPWR storage
 appliance, based on Intel's IOP310 I/O processor. Wasabi plans on supporting
 the full range of XScale-based processors and solutions in the next few
 months, including network processors and portable information appliances.
     "We're excited to be working with Intel in bringing NetBSD to the XScale,"
 said Perry Metzger, CEO of Wasabi. "The combination of XScale and the powerful
 NetBSD operating system will be an ideal platform for a range of networking,
 storage and consumer electronics devices."
