Overview

The Infinit technology allows for the creation of heterogeneous storage infrastructure by aggregating various storage resources and unifying them into a UNIX-like Infinit file system.

Infinit file systems benefit from several advantages over the centralized and distributed file systems commonly used.

Control

SECURE

All the files stored are cut into chunk and every chunk is encrypted (RSA/AES-256) with a unique key.

CONTROL

Control the localisation of your data by selecting the storage resources/providers involved in the infrastructure.

RELIABLE

Every block of every file is dynamically replicated several times (configurable by the administrator) in order to ensure durability and availability of the data.

FAULT TOLERANT

Detects failures and automatically adapts the number of replicas in order to guarantee the reliability of the data.

Scalability

FLEXIBLE

Manage your needs in terms of storage capacity by increasing/decreasing (scale up/down) contributions from existing providers and/or adding/removing (scale out/in) storage resources without interrupting the service.

SCALABLE

With a peer-to-peer foundation, Infinit does not suffer single points of failure or bottlenecks.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

Benefit from a high-throughput UDP-based network protocol for faster data retrieval.

ADAPTABILITY

In the event of a failure, the system heals itself by automatically adjusting the number of replicas.

Administration

MIGRATION

Easily migrate your data from one provider to another whenever you need without any service interruption.

ACCESS CONTROL

Decide who can read/edit files and folders through fine-grained access control capabilities.

AFFORDABLE

No need to acquire specific hardware/appliance or setup/maintain a complicated server-side installation.

VERSIONING

Browse through the different versions of a file and rollback if necessary.

Interface

NATURAL

Easily migrate your data from one provider to another whenever you need without any service interruption.

INTEROPERABILITY

Decide who can read/edit files and folders through fine-grained access control capabilities.

ON DEMAND

No need to acquire specific hardware/appliance or setup/maintain a complicated server-side installation.
