With its flagship Application Accelerator, InfiniteIO delivers the industry's first solution designed to improve application performance by processing metadata separately from file I/O. By offloading metadata processing from the underlying storage or Cloud system, InfiniteIO decreases application latency by up to 50 times, which translates into faster access to data for applications, reduced product development cycles and greater worker productivity.
"We're honoured to be recognized for delivering innovation that finally addresses the longstanding problem of latency created by file system processing of metadata. Data-intensive workflows such as AI and HPC generate and consume millions of small files or more, which translates into billions of metadata requests", stated Mark Cree, CEO of InfiniteIO. "These new workflows require metadata performance that traditional storage and Cloud systems simply cannot deliver. Reducing latency through file metadata management has become the killer app for turbo-charging todays workflows and a strategic opportunity for the channel."
