Reliance Nitro

Datalight Reliance Nitro™ ensures rock-solid data reliability while providing the performance needed to create an optimal user experience. It is a transactional file system created specifically for embedded devices where power loss may occur, protecting critical system and user data from corruption. Additionally, Reliance Nitro assures reliability of each metadata block with CRC32, and works with a broad array of storage media – including raw flash memory, eMMC , RAM, hard disk, USB mass storage, STAT and PATA disk, and SD/MMC.

Datalight works closely with the Linux community to ensure seamless integration for Linux devices. The speed of file and directory access is improved by several orders of magnitude while maintaining complete metadata and file data integrity. The unique combination of tree-based directory architecture, extent based design, and faster atomic transactions, improves performance for I/O throughput and metadata operations. Dynamic Transaction Point™ technology gives developers unprecedented control over the file system.
