AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 18, 2019--

InfiniteIO, the world’s fastest metadata platform to reduce application latency, today announced the new Application Accelerator, which delivers dramatic performance improvements for critical applications by processing file metadata independently from on-premises storage or cloud systems. The new platform provides organizations across industries the lowest possible latency for their mission-critical applications, such as AI/machine learning, HPC and genomics, while minimizing disruption to IT teams.

“Bandwidth and I/O challenges have been largely overcome, yet reducing latency remains a significant barrier to improving application performance,” said Henry Baltazar, vice president of research at 451 Research. “Metadata requests are a large part of file system latency, making up the vast majority of requests to a storage system or cloud. InfiniteIO’s approach to abstracting metadata from file data offers IT managers a nondisruptive way to immediately accelerate application performance.”

As unstructured data has grown exponentially, requests for file metadata—information such as file attributes and access privileges—have also skyrocketed to become a major bottleneck for application performance. InfiniteIO’s latest release, built on the InfiniteIO Metadata Engine (IME) architecture, responds to file metadata requests directly from the network instead of the network-attached storage (NAS) or cloud storage system. InfiniteIO’s metadata abstraction can reduce latency from seconds to microseconds for all files in a hybrid cloud environment. This results in faster access to data and speeds up application performance.

“Reducing latency is the last frontier in improving application performance. The tech industry has been focused on making incremental performance improvements with faster storage and file systems, when the biggest opportunity is in removing the file system latency created by processing metadata requests,” said Mark Cree, CEO of InfiniteIO. “Separating metadata processing from file I/O significantly decreases application latency, which translates into reduced product development cycles and greater worker productivity.”

Turbocharging Data-intensive Applications

The Application Accelerator allows organizations to go faster and easily implement innovation, with minimal to no disruption to existing IT operations:

InfiniteIO today also released new software features that continue to simplify and accelerate tiering of cold data from primary NAS systems to lower-cost cloud storage, such as the ability to scan 1 billion files in a day and a new API for cloud usage charge-back. The IME architecture never recalls metadata back from the cloud, increasing performance and avoiding cloud egress charges. Robust policies automatically tier files so that even rarely accessed information is available on-demand, without disruption or performance compromises.

Exhibiting at SC19

Attendees of the Supercomputing 19 show in Denver can meet InfiniteIO application acceleration experts in the Startup Café inside the exhibit hall from Nov. 18 to 21, 2019. Find more information and book a meeting at https://infinite.io/supercomputing.
