SEAPATH: Configuring and Testing an Industrial-Grade Linux Platform for Critical Real-Time Applications in the Energy Sector - Aurélien Watare, RTE & Eloi Bail, Savoir-Faire Linux

The energy sector is following the telecommunications field by moving towards virtualization for increased flexibility and cost reduction. This leads to an IT/OT convergence where critical applications, previously hosted on specific hardware, become virtual machines. However, these applications require high availability, real-time performance, and cybersecurity. SEAPATH is a project under the LF Energy umbrella that provides a solution for building a real-time virtualization industrial-grade platform based on Yocto or Debian. The technology behind SEAPATH includes the use of Ceph storage, Linux RT, Pacemaker for high availability, Open vSwitch (OVS) for network virtualization, SR-IOV for hardware acceleration, KVM for virtualization, and PTP synchronization for accurate timekeeping. This presentation focuses on the infrastructure-as-code dimension using Ansible, and also describes the continuous integration (CI) process that enables the running of tests on dedicated hardware to validate cybersecurity, deployment, performance, and other key factors.
