About MaxiScale
MaxiScale’s cloud-scale file serving and storage platform is a breakthrough for Internet data centers and storage infrastructure that fundamentally changes the economics of deploying Web-scale applications. The FLEX Software Platform addresses the unpredictable and expanding data requirements facing companies that deliver Internet applications via public and private clouds. It enables customers to reduce capital and operational costs while improving performance by an order of magnitude over competing solutions. MaxiScale’s innovative Peer Set™ architecture and single disk I/O small file operations allow data centers to linearly scale a single namespace to hundreds of petabytes, eliminate forklift upgrades and reduce disk spindle counts by a factor of 10. This results in the ability to scale to 100 times the capacity of current solutions. For more information, please visit:
