At any given time, stored data falls into one of two states: active or inactive.
Our Network-based Storage Controllers accelerate data that is actively being used while continuously migrating inactive data to a cloud or low-cost storage tier.
Based on a unique transparent layer-7 proxy, our Controllers are invisible to installed applications and storage. Instead of a traditional overlay file system, deep-packet inspection keeps track of file activity. If servers and clients are working with a “D:” drive or specific mount point name, with our Controllers, no matter where the data has been migrated, servers and clients continue to work with the same “D:” drive or mount point name. In other words, ZERO workflow changes.
infinite io has taken the intelligence usually associated with a storage system and put it into a networking device.
