FalconStor Software is preparing its cloud strategy around a new file system it developed in collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Executives on the vendor’s earnings call Wednesday evening described HyperFS as a storage virtualization/SAN-based clustered file system that will be used to scale the storage layer of FalconStor’s cloud architecture. FalconStor CEO ReiJane Huai said HyperFS will be ready to launch next year.
FalconStor executives said they have signed an OEM deal with a large rich media content provider to sell a system built on HyperFS.
“That’s the opening shot,” VP of business development Bernie Wu added. “We are definitely going to be expanding our business with that file system. It’s massively scalable, good for cloud computing.”
