Ocarina provides an industry-first online storage optimization solution, helping customers store up to 10 times more data on their current storage from any storage vendor.
Ocarina’s file-aware optimization technology makes Ocarina a leader in online storage optimization solutions. Ocarina’s technology allows companies to reduce their storage footprint and achieve a ten-fold capacity increase on their current storage systems. Unlike other solutions aimed at reducing storage data footprints such as dedupe and generic compression, Ocarina uniquely has the ability to optimize large, media rich files.
The Ocarina Optimizer reads existing files, optimizes them, and writes back highly-optimized files to your chosen storage platform. It uses a three-step file-aware optimization process - Extract, Correlate and Optimize (ECO) - to reduce the size of already compressed files and deliver unmatched capacity improvements in storage systems in Internet data centers.
The Ocarina Reader allows users, applications, and servers to transparently read and write Ocarina-optimized files on demand. It is a software solution that expands optimized files created by the Optimizer in real-time.
