Title: iGeek, Inc. releases Indelible FS

iGeek, Inc. releases Indelible FS
1888 Press Release - iGeek, Inc. today announced
the Beta release of Indelible FS, the Open Source
Storage Management System and Technology
Partnership with Kyocera Communication Systems
Co., Ltd. (KCCS). Storage is one of the key
components of information technology. Today's
storage landscape is confusing with many
different hardware and software products needing
to be integrated together to provide a working
infrastructure. Indelible FS provides a complete
storage system, including traditional file
system, object storage and virtual disks. It is
scalable, distributed and easy to use. Indelible
FS integrates backup and data deduplication into
the basic file system removing the need for
additional software for data safety. Indelible FS
is distributed, caching data where it needs to be
accessed automatically. David Smith-Uchida,
iGeek's President and Head Geek, said, "It's now
2014 and we're still using file systems which
were basically designed in the 1970's. It's time
to start using a storage management system that
actually handles the details of storage
management instead of forcing systems
administrators to constantly worry about disk
failures or lack of space. Backup and data
protection should be a basic feature of the
storage system, not something added on later.
We've created Indelible FS based on our
background in supercomputing, cloud storage and
desktop applications to make a storage system
that is scalable, affordable and easy to use."
Indelible FS is designed to be scalable from
single server to cloud scale. It enables the use
of commodity hardware with enterprise level
stability through advanced software design.
Indelible FS is well suited for cloud providers
and is designed to manage storage at the petabyte
level and beyond. It has support for secure
multi-tenant operations built in, unlike most
storage systems. It is also designed to support
hybrid operations, allowing users to store data
in their local systems and backup or offload to a
cloud provider. "Major online storage providers
such as Amazon, Google, Facebook and Zantaz use
commodity storage and advanced software to
deliver reliable storage at a low cost.
Unfortunately, the only way to use their software
is to use their services. Indelible FS allows
cloud providers and data center operators to
provide storage at a price that is competitive
with Amazon S3 and be profitable," said David
Smith-Uchida. Beginning this summer, storage
services based on Indelible FS will be offered by
iGeek and hosted at KCCS data centers. KCCS will
also evaluate Indelible FS as a storage system
for their cloud solutions. Indelible FS is being
released under the Apache License, and is freely
available to use and modify. Indelible FS runs on
Linux and supports Red Hat, Debian, Ubuntu and
Centos. This is a BETA release and is not
recommended for production use. iGeek, Inc.
offers no warranty or support for the Open Source
release. Please contact iGeek, Inc. for pricing
