Ensures the Longest Flash Memory Lifetime and Highest Performance


Las Vegas, USA and Helsinki, Finland – January 6, 2015 – Tuxera Inc., the market leader in file systems, streaming and network storage technologies, today released Tuxera Flash File System (known as VelocityFS by Tuxera as of 2019) for Linux and Android, which is optimized to run on flash storages such as eMMC and SD. VelocityFS by Tuxera is based on Tuxera’s widely deployed and robust file system technologies with special flash optimization and extended features.

Today’s smart devices need reliable, power-efficient, high capacity storage to support the increasing number of applications that are often run in parallel. Intensive use through always-on apps, which download and write data around the clock, can wear out the physical flash memory. This means dramatically reduced device lifetime. VelocityFS by Tuxera has been developed with leading hardware manufacturers to solve these problems.

“Together with our partners we are working hard on enhancing the products to further reduce flash memory wearing and extend its lifetime. We are also continuously optimizing Tuxera’s solutions for the highest performance and the best reliability,” says Szabolcs Szakacsits, Tuxera President and CTO. “Durability is especially important in automotive market, where the system is expected to last over 15 years. That’s why Tuxera file systems already power eMMC and eSD storages in the latest automotive and mobile deployments.”

VelocityFS by Tuxera prevents file system fragmentation on-the-fly without performance compromises. The file system’s design improves the overall responsiveness of the device ensuring fast boot and mount times, and guarantees data and device integrity during storage removal and unexpected power-off.

VelocityFS by Tuxera is now available for testing and integration. For more information, please contact sales@tuxera.com
