"Computer I/O Corporation, a leading supplier of software that simplifies network access to live and real-time data streams, and MontaVista Software Inc., a provider of open source operating systems for embedded software, today announced a strategic relationship that will allow embedded application developers to easily create high performance Linux I/O servers and appliances. The joint effort will deliver a Linux-based real-time server platform designed for the unique needs of time-sensitive, high-bandwidth applications using streaming media such as multi-media, telecommunications and web servers."

"Computer I/O designed Easy I/O to allow developers to build real-time Linux I/O servers without the need to understand low-level real-time programming issues. MontaVista is focused on enabling the use of Linux in embedded environments where delivery response guarantees are needed for streaming media and other latency-sensitive devices."

"Under the agreement, Computer I/O will use MontaVista's Hard Hat(TM) Linux as an embedded platform for its Easy I/O(TM) product line that simplifies the creation and access of deterministic I/O servers and appliances. The combination of Hard Hat Linux and Easy I/O will give application developers an embedded I/O server platform with transparent network access for both data transfers and browser-based hardware configuration and monitoring."
