"Computer I/O Corporation, a leading provider of embedded software and services for the communications industry, today announced the release of Easy I/O DirectWare, an easy-to-use embedded/enterprise data communications middleware solution enabling Microsoft Windows clients to communicate with Linux-based servers, without concern for operating system or network compatibility."

"Easy I/O DirectWare bridges Linux--the fastest growing server platform for new enterprise applications--with Microsoft Windows, the undisputed software leader in the desktop application market. Since many Microsoft Windows client/server communication tools require a homogeneous environment, and there's a growing need for desktops to access data and configuration information on remote Linux-based servers, system developers need a middleware solution that easily links the two operating environments."

"As networks become more heterogeneous and functions more distributed, the industry needs interoperability between the prevalent Microsoft Windows installed base and today's rapidly growing new breed of Linux server applications," said Paul Zorfass, senior embedded analyst with IDC/FTI. "Computer I/O's DirectWare addresses this growing need for remote communications between disparate operating systems and devices in applications such as telecom testing, data warehousing and VoIP."
