Easy Computing CompanyEasy Computing CompanyEasyCo’s array of SSDs, WildFire Storage's servers have a patented software layer that makes flash work better.

EasyCo implements LLC's patented flash storage optimization software.

WildFire Storage Servers unique is EasyCo's patented block translation stack called ESS (Enterprise Storage Stack).

This software layer changes how flash storage works.

Instead of relying on individual SSDs to act like HDDs, ESS lets flash act like flash.

With ESS, individual SSDs see only perfect linear writes.

The RAID-5 or RAID-6 layer sees only perfect linear writes.

This turns the storage hardware into a linear streaming engine that just sucks up the bytes, bandwidth is maximized, IO/s are maximized, wear is minimized.

WildFire Hard Disk Storage Stack (WildFire HDSS) achieves linear write rates without a smart controller, and works fine with both HBAs and software RAID.

Similarly, the memory map used by WildFire HDSS has been virtualized and needs only a small amount of memory for proper function.

Finally, WildFire HDSS supports compression, reducing wear and tear to the storage media.

The company was incorporated in 1995 and is based in Portsmouth, United Kingdom.

Infinite IOInfinite IOInifinite io combines Flash memory with Cloud storage to help data center managers gain control of exploding data storage costs.

It engages in developing software that sends inactive data to cloud storage systems while keeping frequently used data onsite, as well as enables users to access data in the cloud.

It’s an accepted fact that eighty percent or more of all data is written once and never accessed again and that inactive data in the typical data center doubles every twenty-four months or less.

Infinite io technology is designed to automatically control and manage the massive growth of inactive data that assumes the majority of most IT storage budgets while dramatically increasing the access performance of data that is actively used.

Infinite io, Inc. provides NSC-110, a network-based storage controller.

The company’s solution automatically and transparently migrates inactive data to the cloud and converts file storage applications into cloud enabled.

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, Inc. was incorporated in 2012 and is headquartered in Austin, Texas.
