BSD is a family of UNIX-like general purpose Operating Systems. It is permissively licensed and business-friendly. Originating from the University of California, Berkeley, it has a history of on-going enhancements and advancing features. Unlike other Operating Systems that have adverse licensing provisions or DIY quality, BSD is especially suitable for complex applications with a substantial level of user-developed intellectual property.
Many of our customers have chosen it over copyleft-licensed GNU/Linux solutions that require that the same rights (such as freely redistributing the source code of your application) to be preserved in derivative works. The GPL license may be irrelevant to some projects but central to others. Our legal team can help you determine the best option for your needs.
NetBSD was used in NASA’s SAMS-II Project of measuring the microgravity environment on the International Space Station, and for investigations of TCP for use in satellite networks.
Moritz Systems is a proud contributor and member of the BSD community, with a primary focus on the NetBSD technology. NetBSD is a free, fast, secure and highly portable Operating System, available for a wide range of platforms, from large-scale servers and powerful desktop computers to IOT and Edge Computing devices. We believe that all users of Open Source should have the freedom of choice between alternative solutions and that is why we provide BSD licensed software services to our customers.
Our team has excellent proficiency in preparing tailor made solutions based on NetBSD. We deliver board packages with support for the specific features of the hardware platform, documentation and cross toolchain hosted on Windows, Linux, macOS or other BSDs. We offer configuration and installation support.
Moritz Systems has a successful track record of Open Source contributions that were merged back upstream to the NetBSD mainline, porting 3rd party software, stress testing, exhausting code verification, kernel and userland fuzzing, performance profiling, enhancing the tooling (debuggers, compilers), improving conformance with the standards (POSIX, Standard C) and compatibility with other UNIX-like Operating Systems.
