"JNI Corporation...one of the leading vendors of Fibre Channel
host bus adapters (HBAs), today announced the debut of its software
driver for Red Hat(R) Linux(R) running on JNI's Emerald(TM)-based
FibreStar(TM) PCI bus HBA cards."
"The driver, currently in beta, will be available during 1Q 2000
as part of a suite of integrated drivers introduced by JNI called
the PC Server DriverSuite(TM)...."
"The driver operates under Red Hat Linux 6.0 and 6.1. The
Linux driver offers the same enterprise-level feature set as all
JNI drivers, including operating in all Fibre Channel topologies,
point-to-point, arbitrated loop and switched fabric, the latter two
being used for true Storage Area Network (SAN)
implementations. The Linux driver also features a common code
base with other JNI drivers to assure the same feature sets are
implemented across all operating systems."
