The article reports on the support of Arabella Software for Embedded Planet's EP8248 and EP885 single board computers in 2005. Arabella Linux provides the broadest protocol and peripheral support available in the market for the Freescale PowerQUICC family of processors. Arabella Linux is based on the popular Debian Linux distribution. Arabella adds to this its specific value-add in terms of hardware-software integration, device driver development and customization services to create the optimal embedded Linux solutions for its customers: what Arabella calls "Customized Linux Solutions". The Arabella Linux distribution includes a complete development environment and is customized to extract the most functionality and performance from the PowerQUICC processors. Support for the Embedded Planet EP8248 and EP885 boards comes integrated into both the Arabella Linux commercial distribution as well as the Arabella Free Linux Reference Design. The Free Linux Reference Design provides everything that is needed to immediately download, run and begin working with a Linux application that is optimized to run on the Embedded Planet boards, including the U-Boot boot loader, a fully functional Linux system and host development tools. The Free Linux Reference Design is made available on a CD from Arabella Software and is provided at request to qualified companies. The EP8248 and EP885 boards are based on the latest PowerQUICC devices that include security engines. Arabella Software is the only commercial Linux provider that offers high performance Linux "Native IPsec" optimized to provide performance on par with high-end commercial IPsec packages at a fraction of the cost.
