Tuxera Timeline

Tuxera’s roots are in the open source NTFS file system development dating back to the late 1990s. Szabolcs Szakacsits founded NTFS-3G project, which incorporated as a Finland based company NTFS-3G Technology in 2008. Meanwhile Anton Altaparmakov had been developing and maintaining NTFS file system in the Linux kernel. In 2009 the company was renamed to Tuxera Inc. with Mikko Välimäki as CEO, Szabolcs as President and CTO and Anton as the lead file system developer. The name Tuxera was chosen to reflect the company believed “Tux” (the Linux penguin’s name) would be in the new “era” in every device. The name also reflected the company would work on other file systems and software technologies starting with the new file system standard exFAT.
