We use plain-vanilla Erlang for development and debugging, and HiPE for
production systems. BTW, we run our applications on both mono and dual
CPU systems, although we currently stick to the mono thread BEAM for
shipping systems.
I should add that to communicate with the hardware (which we also
designed and developed) we are using Erlang port drivers. The fact of
not using Erlang for every single task into the system is not a source
of problem for us. The idea is to use the language best suited to solve
the problem, but we take every measure to minimize non-Erlang code in
our system.
Regards,
Massimo
