editor's comments:- July 2013 - among other things Datalight designs patented file systems and drivers optimized for embedded flash storage environments.

Datalight's SSD related products include its FlashFX Tera flash translation layer manager source code which manages bad block management and endurance.

The company says FlashFXe can provide upto 21x more IOPS in Linux environments, extend life and reduce power consumption by upto 40% by reducing write amplification.

new power fail safe file system for tiny memory IoT
Editor:- May 5, 2015 - Datalight today released a preview version of Reliance Edge, a power fail-safe file system for FreeRTOS which allows developers building IoT devices to reliably store and quickly access data in embedded SSDs using as little as 4KB of RAM and 11KB of code.

Designing a file system which met the high reliability standard set by our (high performance) Reliance Nitro and could fit into tiny microcontroller based systems presented a challenge and I love a challenge, said Jeremy Sherrill, architect of file systems for Datalight. Reliance Edge offers a rich set of features in a highly efficient architecture.

Reliance Edge can work with a broad array of storage mediaincluding NOR and NAND flash, eMMC, SD/MMC, NVRAM, USB storage, and SATA (or PATA) SSDs. Datalight plans to release new pre-ported kits for other small-kernel OSes over the coming months.
