Tuxera Network Storage Software Help Deliver the Best Home Network Performance and the Fastest Data Transfer Speeds

Helsinki, Finland and Playa Vista, CA January 6th 2016Tuxera Inc., market leader in digital storage, network technologies and streaming solutions announced today that its network storage software powers the latest, high-end MAX-STREAM MU-MIMO routers from Linksys® including the EA8500 and the newly launched EA7500, a MU-MIMO AC1900 Wi-Fi router.

The Tuxera Network Storage Accelerator software (TNSA) helps boost read and write performance on external hard drives connected to select Linksys routers via USB connections at up to 300% improvement.[1] At the same time, Tuxera solutions improve reliability with built-in fail-safe technology, which guarantees volume integrity against corruptions in unexpected plug-off, power-off situations.

Speedy routers with excellent Wi-Fi coverage and stable signals, enable each and every device to connect at its top speed. Coupled with an external drive, Linksys MAX-STREAM EA8500 and EA7500 help deliver the fastest network storage data rivaling even the high-end dedicated NAS servers.

“Linksys and Tuxera have teamed to create compatibility between the Linksys internal Linux based operating system and external file systems used by Windows (NTFS) and OS X (HFS+).  The Tuxera software allows our Linux platform to understand and write to drives formatted with these file systems at high speeds and overall better experience for our customers,” said Dan Wang, Director of Product Development, Linksys.

“Linksys routers outfitted with powerful software and hardware answer the challenges of the modern connected home. With low CPU consumption, there is more room for services and applications to run at the same time without any slow down or interference,” added Arnaud Petit, Global Sales Director at Tuxera.
