"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."
