The Peaxy Hyperfiler is a scalable, software-defined storage system that runs on industry-standard storage servers. It delivers a radically new distributed storage architecture designed from the ground up for a connected, expanding world of information.
A linearly scalable system, the Hyperfiler architecture features a single namespace that aggregates from a few terabytes to many petabytes of data, billions of files, and thousands of nodes across multiple servers using virtual machine (VM) technology.
Its automated, policy-based data management optimizes performance and reduces operating expense by migrating data to the storage class best suited for each application, from on-premises to cloud. To improve the price/performance ratio even further, the Hyperfiler runs on commodity PC servers and delivers a reduction in disk I/O and network I/O by a factor of up to 10 compared to traditional architectures.
Peaxy, Inc. was founded in 2012 by a group of longtime storage and software industry experts dedicated to solving the problems surrounding the enormous growth in unstructured data storage.
The Hyperfiler is currently under development and will be available for test installations at the end of 2013. Interested end-users and channel partners should contact Peaxy by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
