[h=2]The United States Patent & Trademark Office has Granted APTARE a Patent For Cataloging the Metadata for Billions of Files[/h]
CAMPBELL, Calif., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- APTARE, a pioneer in data center optimization software, has been notified by The U.S. Patent and Trademarks Office that it has been granted a patent to create a, "Catalog that Stores File System Metadata in an Optimized Manner," (United States Patent No. 8,402,071). This patent provides a method for the persistence and cataloging of billions of file and folder metadata contained in unstructured file systems through a highly efficient, optimized, and compact mechanism.

This patent is the heart of how APTARE® StorageConsole® File Analytics answers the big data analytics problem to manage vast quantities of unstructured data contained in file systems throughout enterprise datacenters. Based on this patent, APTARE StorageConsole File Analytics maintains a purpose-built database using unique hashing and index caching algorithms to reduce the size of each entry to as few bytes as possible, while still containing all the information in each metadata entry and achieving a full index searching capability across all file or folder attributes. This results in an amazing breakthrough in terms of storage economics, exceptional performance, and search efficiencies across billions of file system metadata entries.


"Applying this patent provides APTARE the capability of expressing file level metadata in as few bytes as possible in our StorageConsole File Analytics product while still maintaining full indexing and aggregation across billions of files," said Rick Clark, CEO, APTARE. "We are pleased the U.S. Patent and Trademarks Offices have issued us this patent as APTARE continues to develop innovative technologies to address the complexity and challenges of the data center optimization market."
