Datalight's New Reliance Nitro 4.0, A Power Failsafe, High Performance File System, Improves Support for SE Linux.

Reliance Nitro 4.0 Now Supports Linux Kernels 2.6.31 through 4.3, including Security Enhanced Linux

BOTHELL, Wash. – January 6, 2015 – Today Datalight released Reliance Nitro™ 4.0, the latest version of its fault-tolerant embedded file system for Embedded Linux operating systems. This new version formalizes support of Security Enhanced (SE) Linux as well as compatibility with recently released Linux kernel versions.

Datalight is committed to supporting Long-term Support (LTS) kernel versions and validates each product release with these kernel versions. By taking the additional step of verifying support for SE Linux, Datalight has provided users of Reliance Nitro with assurance that they can confidently rely upon the mandatory access control (MAC) protections and other features provided by SE Linux.

“Our customers have successfully deployed products using SE Linux based upon their own independent validation,” said Ken Whitaker, Datalight VP of Engineering. “Datalight has now integrated the necessary test and validation steps in our standard release testing, which will help our customers using SE Linux to get to market faster.”

In addition, version 4.0 confirms support for Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) through 5.1 (Lollipop). This release was also validated through the file system test portion of the Android Compatibility Test Suite. Support for OverlayFS was also updated.

Reliance Nitro was designed from the ground up for high-performance applications. Dynamic Transaction Point™ technology provides 100 percent immunity from file corruption, even after unexpected system interruption. Reliance Nitro goes through extensive reliability testing, including more than 2 million random power cycle tests without a failure. Embedded applications can benefit from faster boot times after power loss, regardless of disk size. Datalight flash file system products are available on VxWorks, Windows Embedded Compact, Windows Embedded Handheld, Linux and many other RTOS operating systems.
