"Datalight announced today that it has released Reliance Nitro 2.0, the first full-featured file system for embedded Linux. The new file system combines strong read and write performance with fast and consistent mount time, rock-solid reliability, a comprehensive tool set, and support by a dedicated team of in-house engineers.

"Makers of embedded products need flexible and supported software as these devices continue to increase in complexity. The pressure is on manufacturers to focus on core competencies and rely on vendors for specialized components as well as expertise. OEMs expect the full catalogue of features to include performance, reliability, flexibility, tools and support as part of the complete file system package.

"The Reliance Nitro SDK for Linux v2.0 assists developers with each step of file system integration. Standard utilities include tools to validate hardware (DCLTest, DevIOTest, and RelTest), test performance (FSIOTest and FSStressTest) as well as perform standard file system preparation activities such as formatting (relFsVolFormat) and integrity checking (relFsChk). Of particular utility are FSIOTest and FSStressTest – platform independent performance and reliability testing tools that can be used with any file system. Also included is a Reliance Nitro Windows Driver for seamlessly moving data between a Linux system and a Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7-based system."
