Indra Networks Announces StorCompress MX3 Hardware Compression Board for Virtual Tape Libraries

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 12, 2006

Indra Networks announced today the release of StorCompress MX3, a PCI-X compression board with a compression throughput of up to 450 MByte/s. MX3 implements compression algorithm entirely in hardware to enable Virtual Tape Library (VTL) and Disk-based backup systems to offer consistently high levels of throughput. MX3s compression is based on the lossless deflate algorithm, which delivers better compression ratio than older hardware compression technologies. In a VTL system, MX3 offers three explicit benefits: faster backups, increased disk capacity, and improved tape drive utilization.

StorCompress MX3 hardware architecture includes 64-bit, 133 MHz PCI-X bus interface and multiple compression engines working in tandem to deliver compression throughput of up to 450 MB/s and decompression throughput of up to 480 MB/s.

FalconStor Software, a leading provider of innovative network storage software, is working with Indra Networks to include support for MX3 in their VTL software. Indra has executed well with their new StorCompress MX3 board. It should be appealing to our VTL customers who wish to use data compression without sacrificing throughput. Support for their compression board will be offered in our next VTL software release scheduled for this quarter," said Bernie Wu, FalconStor's V.P. of Business Development.

VTL customers are the focus behind the design and architecture of MX3. The disk-based VTL market is going through the roof right now and I expect 2006 to be a banner year for this technology. Any adjunct technology that allows IT to cost effectively keep more data on disk should do well. We have defined this as Capacity Optimized Storage (COS). Indra Networks products can play a solid role in this segment of the market, said Arun Taneja, an analyst with Taneja Group, in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.

VTL systems need high performance data compression to cost effectively backup ever increasing corporate data. With compression throughput to match large-scale enterprise data loads and Indras industry-best hardware-based compression ratio, MX3 will enable our OEM customers to outperform their competitors. VTL users who are frustrated by the steep reduction in performance of their systems due to software compression will benefit most from MX3, said Anupama Anantharaman, V.P. of Business Development at Indra Networks.

StorCompress MX3 uses the deflate algorithm, which is compatible with the popular gzip and zlib open source software. This guarantees that the data compressed by StorCompress MX3 will be decompressible by gzip or zlib software running on the client computer or in the VTL system. Of course, this only becomes necessary if the StorCompress MX3 hardware is unavailable. In typical usage, MX3 compresses data on-the-fly as it is being written to disk by the backup software and decompresses it during data recovery. The hardware and software architectures are flexible enough to be quickly customized to an OEM customers unique needs. To integrate with MX3, a customer needs to make calls to the MX3 compression API from its VTL or backup software. Driver is available for Linux RedHat versions 7.2 and 9, and Fedora Core 1, 2, 3, and 4. Other notable features of MX3 include a kernel level API, CRC32 or Adler32 error checking for data protection, anti-expansion, parity error checking for both incoming and outgoing data, and built-in decompression engine to facilitate fast recovery of data. StorCompress MX3 hardware and software leverage Indra Networks five years of R&D in developing compression coprocessors to enable OEM customers to offer hardware compression with the shortest time to market.

Indras StorCompress products maximize network bandwidth, available storage capacity and system throughput through lossless data compression. Typical applications for StorCompress include Disk-To-Disk Backup, VTL, and data archival. Depending on the type and size of the data being compressed, StorCompress can reduce data size by 2x to 10x. By reducing the size of the data, on average, to about one-third of its original size with almost no CPU utilization, StorCompress products enable network servers and storage appliances to handle large amounts of data without affecting their throughput. When used in storage appliances, Indras products will allow OEMs to offer higher capacity products at a much lower cost.

Availability Product samples are available now with general availability on February 1, 2006. StorCompress MX3 carries a lead time of 8-12 weeks. For further enquiries, please send an email to sales@indranetworks.com, or call (925)-519-0609.

From the Operating Room to the Board Room: Tess Hottenroth Tackles Multibillion Dollar Crowdfunding Market with Her Renegade Website


Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 28, 2013

"Every revolution needs a renegade," says Tess Hottenroth, founder of crowdfunding upstart ClickStartMe.com, "And I am that renegade who is going to bring the crowdfunding revolution to the masses." Hottenroth stands out as one of only a handful of women entrepreneurs in the male-dominated tech startup sector. According to the New York Times, women account for only 6 percent of the chief executives of the top 100 tech companies, and only 8 percent of venture-backed technology startups. Hottenroth takes on the challenge with the same renegade attitude that pushed her give up medical school through Columbia University to take on the business world.

While Hottenroth tackles the challenge of being a groundbreaker with aplomb, she doesnt see gender as an issue that will make or break a deal for crowdfunders. People and businesses who need to raise money through crowdfunding dont care if the person running the site wears a tie or slips on Louboutin pumps every day, Hottenroth says. People want a user-friendly experience that works and is fun, and we give that to them with ClickStartMe.

Crowdfunding exploded across the Internet in 2009 as the newest way to generate support for funding-worthy projects. Hottenroth recognized the need for a fundamental change in the crowdfunding concept which is geared mainly to musical artists, filmmakers and product creators. She knew she had to revolutionize the industry by establishing her own innovative site, and by allowing anyone to benefit from the new concept. Hottenroth's creation, ClickStartMe, is the first crowdfunding site to offer individuals and businesses everything they need to realize their dreams, including a platform to attract supporters and raise funds, an e-commerce storefront, social media tools, expert guidance, and the added bonus of site-sponsored contests offering amazing perks and prizes.

The twenty-nine year-old entrepreneur has always had a passion for helping others, which in her early years pointed her toward a career in medicine. Although she was accepted to medical school in Columbia University's international program, she choose the business world over an Ivy League medical education. Ultimately I realized that as much as I enjoyed the operating room, I wasnt suited to spend my life confined to it. I wanted unpredictable experiences and to be constantly learning something new, Hottenroth said. Today, I cant imagine myself as Dr. Hottenroth doing hip replacements all day instead of meeting with people, vetting ideas, writing code, designing graphics and running financials.

After graduating from college with degrees in kinesiology and Spanish, Hottenroth spent two years in Nigeria, volunteering in hospitals while doing post-graduate studies in Global Public Health. After her acceptance to medical school, she returned to the United States to fulfill her goal of becoming an orthopedic surgeon. But a few weeks before the first semester started, Hottenroth realized that her true calling lay elsewhere. After dabbling in the stock market and learning about mergers and acquisitions, she embarked on a journey Down Under in Australia, and emerged from the year-long adventure as a published author.

It was after she returned to America and took the helm of a Florida media firm that crowdfunding first caught Hottenroth's attention. Most of our media clients were small businesses, and as the economy continued to plummet, it was disheartening to see phenomenal ideas that were going nowhere because of the bad economy, and dreams that weren't taking flight because traditional funding sources had dried up, Hottenroth says. The 2012 JOBS Act put equity crowdfunding on her radar as an alternative for small business, and she began to view the concept as the potential antidote for a multitude of financing woes.

Before embarking on her personal crusade to radically change the face of crowdfunding, Hottenroth took a long look at the choices that existed and what existing platforms should do and weren't doing. She solidified her stance that crowdfunding shouldn't focus solely on artists or musicians, and that anyone with a dream or a creative idea should be able to leverage a crowdfunding site to generate support and financial backing. She also felt that the ideal crowdfunding site should foster a personal and hands-on experience, and be much more than just a funding platform. It should be a site that reminded people that there was an American Dream once upon a time, and should inspire them to reconsider how it could be accomplished, Hottenroth said.

The crowdfunding platform Hottenroth envisioned wouldn't kick people off once a funding goal was reached it would encourage them to network, stay in touch with supporters and contribute to other projects. People would be able to sell the products they developed, the art they created, or the music they produced through an on-site store. They would also have easy access to key resources like accountants, patent lawyers, manufacturers and marketing experts to help them along their road to success.

Hottenroth saw her entrepreneurial vision come to life with the launch of ClickStartMe, and because of her renegade spirit and passion, it is poised to take crowdfunding to unprecedented heights. Her goal of helping others is alive and well too, and she's relishing her role as an advocate and a mentor for everyone who wants to make their own American Dream a reality.

Hottenroth believes that being a female entrepreneur gives her certain advantages over her male counterparts in the crowdfunding world. Her creative flair and her intuitive sense of public perception led her to design ClickStartMe in a way that makes the process of crowdfunding uncomplicated and user-friendly.

And lets not forget fun, Hottenroth says. While crowdfunding a project youre passionate about is serious business, we all want to have some fun in our lives, and ClickStartMe definitely puts the fun in crowdfunding.

To inject a healthy dose of fun into her cutting-edge startup, Hottenroth took her cue from the publics fascination with televised reality and talent contest shows like The Voice, Americas Next Top Model and Shark Tank and added contests for people who create a ClickStartMe project. Each contest offers cash prizes, trips to fun locations and other valuable rewards for participating.

Our Spokesmodel contest winner gets $ 5000. We are flying 10 models and one photographer to Las Vegas for a finale on stage at The Act, the hottest club in the country, Hottenroth said. In our invention and product category, the contest winner gets a national distribution deal for their product and a television commercial produced for them. The perks make it fun for users and give them the opportunity to make their product widely visible, but they also add to the experience for donors instead of just being funders, they become active supporters cheering on their contestant.
