Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Jungo announces the up coming release of version 5.0 of its successful driver development tools - WinDriver and KernelDriver. Version 5.0 provides WinDriver's graphical Wizard for Linux and new graphical tools for KernelDriver which automates the kernel mode driver code generation.

"WinDriver for Linux is a device driver development toolkit, which enables you to develop Linux device drivers for PCI / ISA / ISAPnP and EISA hardware (including serial and parallel ports), without having to be familiar with the Linux kernel. All development is done in the user mode using your regular development environment. A Linux driver written using WinDriver is source compatible to Solaris, Windows 2000/NT, 98/95, Windows CE, NT Embedded, OS/2 and VxWorks. Just recompile and run!"

"WinDriver is based on a generic device driver which resides in the Linux kernel. Your application calls WinDriver kernel module through a user mode API, thereby eliminating the need to learn and understand the Linux internals. WinDriver enables you to write and debug all your hardware access code in the user mode, eliminating the need for long and tedious kernel code writing and debugging."
