As businesses around the world have come to rely on data, real-time processing is quickly becoming a necessity to remain competitive. And the more data a company has, the more real-time processing it will need. The same applies to industrial computers that control control systems, edge servers, robots and even drones. These systems require real-time kernel capabilities to be able to process data as quickly as possible.
