The Parascale Mission
Parascale ("Parallel Scalability") was founded in 2004 on the premise that advances in computer hardware over the past ten years make possible better solutions for file storage, management, and distribution. Better means solutions that are more reliable, with more storage capacity, with higher read/write bandwidth, easier-to-manage, and less expensive to buy and operate than ever before. Parascale recognized the need for a new class of storage solutions designed to support the wave of digital-content-intensive applications being adopted in the 21st century.
These new applications—made possible by declining costs of semiconductors and the growth of the Internet—include video-on-demand, digital document archiving, scientific data analysis, video surveillance management, and medical image remote diagnosis.
Adopting the best technologies in software design and leveraging the best tools available, Parascale has delivered the Parascale Parascale Cloud Storage (PCS) system software laye
Parascale's founders have extensive experience in the development of systems software including operating systems, file systems, and database management systems on which modern applications rely.
