Our modular architecture eliminates the necessity for over-provisioned storage, and allows you to start with only as much capacity and performance
as you really need.
At the same time, it also provides the ability to seamlessly enhance capacity or performance, in lock-step increments, whenever required, using current-generation hardware, eliminating fork-lift upgrades.
The hardware-autonomy of each “storage cell” ensures modular, “incremental-forever” maintenance and unsurpassed investment protection.
The IntegralStor framework uses, by-design small, modular & energy-efficient hardware building-blocks to deliver a scalable, high-performance,
fault-resilient and easy-to-manage storage solution.
IntegralView, our browser driven single-dashboard storage manager, aggregates and virtualizes multiple disks into storage pools, and multiple pools into a unified namespace, allowing a single storage system or a grid of storage-systems to be configured, administered & monitored as a single system.
Our design is informed by our conviction, that durable value can only be realised through the maximisation of useful product life.
Our use of commodity hardware eliminates vendor-lock-in and liberates you from the risk of unreasonable maintenance costs, and the expensive
and wasteful, but industry-prevalent practice of planned obsolesence.
Together with our base of open software, this allows you to always remain in control your data.
Of course, while some of the tools and features we build, may be unique to us, the absence of a lock-in to the underlying hardware or software, empowers you to determine the lifespan of your infrastructure.
In the decade and more that we've been immersed in data storage, we've had a ringside view of several generations of
data storage solutions, from multiple vendors, attempting to address the challenge of electronic data storage.
While there have been massive advances and improvements in capacity and peformance, in terms of data durability, nothing very significant has really changed.
The key to data integrity and durability is, to decouple data content from the underlying hardware
While the cloud has abstracted away some of the hardware dependency, it comes at the cost of security and privacy; and yet, still does not deliver true hardware-decoupled data storage.
Our ground-breaking new system treats any dataset as a collection of "data molecules" with its underlying "atomic" structure, amenable to algorithmic organisation.
This allows the system to operate in a manner that completely decouples data content from storage hardware, and mitigates the complexity, costs and limited lifespans of traditional data storage infrastructure.
Our patent-pending algorithmic data representation and storage system is a fundamentally new, future-proof approach to information storage.
Deployable as a private or public, internet-scale framework, it guarantees data durability, content integrity, security & privacy, as well as hitherto unprecedented levels of efficiency in data footprint optimization, transmission and archival.
Our engagement with data storage, goes back over a decade, to the year 2000, when The Datalifecycle Company was incorporated as an independent system builder of data storage solutions.
Using hardware and software building blocks from a number of vendors across the world, we have been building independent data storage solutions spanning the lifecycle of data; from storage, to protection, archival and disposal.
Over several years, Datalifecycle's storage solutions have found acceptance with a wide range of customers across different verticals including manufacturing, financial services, media & entertainment, government, IT services, etc.
However, by the end of the decade, it was aparent, that in order to deliver durable customer value we needed to be truly independent, and build our own storage platform.
Sometime in 2012, we began evaluating a number of candidate open source projects and commodity hardware designs, that could serve as the base for our data storage platform.
In 2014, this initiative was forked into a new company - Fractalio Data.
Hooray! The first version of IntegralStor for unified and scale out storage is ready....and, we have our first customers!
