Tuxera Reliance™ and FlashFX Pro™ (today sold as FlashFX Tera) deliver mission-critical data storage for spacecraft.

Dreams take flight

June 4th, 2010 – SpaceX sent the Falcon 9 rocket on its maiden voyage from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station with a successful orbital insertion. Falcon 9 is a reusable spacecraft which will be used to resupply the International Space Station under the Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) program.

We at Tuxera are delighted that SpaceX selected our Reliance and FlashFX Pro software to protect mission-critical data from the rigors of space travel – such as shock, vibration, temperature extremes, and radiation.

Emily Shanklin, Director, Marketing and Communications for SpaceX had this to say about Tuxera: “Datalight’s* software enables reliable flash-based embedded computing for SpaceX’s upcoming Falcon 9 and Dragon spacecraft missions in the data-hostile conditions of space.”

* This customer success story has been updated July 8, 2020. Datalight was originally mentioned as the software provider in this story. As of 2019, Datalight Inc. became a wholly owned subsidiary of Tuxera Inc. Tuxera now owns all of Datalight’s former products, including the ones mentioned in this project.
