About infinite io, inc.
infinite io is changing the underpinnings of data storage by putting
storage intelligence in the network. Our unique architecture responds to
metadata requests faster than the most advanced all-flash storage
arrays, significantly increasing the performance of existing storage.
And when that metadata indicates files are no longer being accessed,
they are migrated to low-cost cloud storage, all without sacrificing
security or availability. Installing like a network switch, our products
are totally transparent to existing systems and require zero workflow
changes. For the first time, storage performance can be dramatically
increased without a forklift storage array upgrade and traditional
file-based workflows can take immediate advantage of low-cost cloud
storage with no application changes, gateways, or complex new file
systems. For more information please visit infinite.io.
