Datalight High-performance File System Now Available for Windows CE, Windows Mobile and VxWorks

Datalight Reliance Nitro, a fault-tolerant embedded file system is now available to improve performance on Windows CE, Windows Mobile and VxWorks.

Bothell, WA, June 18, 2009 --( Datalight announced availability today for Reliance Nitro, the newest in the company lineup of fault-tolerant embedded file systems. Reliance Nitro is now available for Windows CE and Windows Mobile as well as VxWorks, and is reported to boost sequential and random write speeds as much as five times faster than the default file systems. Reliance Nitro is designed to allow devices like smartphones and digital cameras to store and access large amounts of data without the lag time often experienced when dealing with multimedia and other large files.

To make Reliance Nitro faster than other file systems, the Datalight engineering team analyzed all I/O operations, eliminated all redundant calls to the disk, and optimized the file system’s disk operations. This translates into much faster throughput speed for read and write operations. In fact, the revolutionary tree-based allocation structure allows Nitro to be up to 100 times faster on file operation speeds, enabling a much more responsive user experience.

To demonstrate the performance and reliability benefits of Reliance Nitro, Datalight and partner MPC Data, Ltd. have designed a video playback demo application that uses the TI Beagle Board and Windows CE. The demo shows the difference between using the default Windows CE flash file system and upgrading to Datalight Reliance Nitro. The application is available at no charge by contacting Datatlight at
