Companies are now drowning in data. The cost of computer gear, coupled with the rate of drive failure to store hundreds of petabytes of data is simply inefficient. Over the past few years, the need for innovative technologies that can solve issues related to the storage, security, availability and reliability of massive amounts of data has steadily increased. Since the company’s founding in 2004, Cleversafe has made tremendous strides in technology innovation year over year to deliver on the capabilities of dispersed object-storage technology to solve this hyper-scale storage growth.

Cleversafe’s dsNet system protects both data and metadata equally and is inherently more reliable than traditional storage systems. By applying the company’s unique Information Dispersal technology to slice and disperse data, single points of failure and centralized synchronization points are eliminated. As data is distributed evenly across all Slicestor nodes metadata can scale linearly and infinitely as new nodes are added, thus reducing any scalability bottlenecks and increasing performance and reliability. Cleversafe’s unique approach delivers the powerful combination of analytics and storage in a geographically distributed single system allowing organizations to efficiently scale their Big Data environments to hundreds of petabytes and even exabytes today.

Cleversafe increased its IP portfolio in support of Dispersed Storage technology and presently holds 40 granted and issued patents by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
