Linux operating system driver support (Red Hat 6.0) is now offered for the firm’s PCI Reflective Memory line of networking products. The driver supports both shared-memory and Internet Protocol (IP) modes of operation. Shared memory is used for real-time networking in which application-level programs in different nodes share data via Reflective Memory. IP allows Reflective Memory to function as the physical layer of TCP/IP. These features provide all the file handling, socket and stream functions of TCP/IP. Reflective Memory technology is a fast, efficient means of sharing data across distributed and/or dissimilar computer nodes.
