Agilstor Ltd uses innovation to solve critical customer storage needs, creating unique hardware, software and Hybrid Clouds that can be employed by small businesses which do not have IT expertise. Ultimately, Agilstor Ltd will provide functionality that will allow small businesses to exploit the information stored based on distributed computing ‘Big Data’ software.
SimpleSmart Storage® products distributes the storage into smaller devices that connect directly to client computers and automatically executes sophisticated software that amalgamates the storage and replicates data to provide redundancy. The device contains an Ethernet bridge that will divert some data protocol packets to be proceeded by the on-board CPU which simplifies installation and customer usage. The direct connection to the client computer is similar to the approach of USB external disk drives, so end users are familiar with this cabling method. The system software can automatically create Hybrid Cloud Syst...

Ultimately, Agilstor Ltd will provide functionality that will allow small businesses to exploit the information stored based on distributed computing ‘Big Data’ software.
SimpleSmart Storage® products distributes the storage into smaller devices that connect directly to client computers and automatically executes sophisticated software that amalgamates the storage and replicates data to provide redundancy. The device contains an Ethernet bridge that will divert some data protocol packets to be proceeded by the on-board CPU which simplifies installation and customer usage. The direct connection to the client computer is similar to the approach of USB external disk drives, so end users are familiar with this cabling method. The system software can automatically create Hybrid Cloud System, storing files locally for high performance and in the cloud for fail-safe redundancy and cost effective storage of backup files (see fig1). SimpleSmart Storage® uses scale-out storage techniques that are being deployed in Enterprise level storage systems; the goal of scale-out storage is to allow the user to grow storage resources as business needs change over time. The small business user will simply plug additional storage nodes into the local network and the management software will automatically incorporate the new units into the amalgamated storage and simply present a larger storage volume.
Agilstor will sell two types of devices; ‘plug-computers’ that is lower cost and requires a USB external drive for the storage element and a high performance Intel/AMD CPU based small computer system with hard-disk-drive included in the unit that also has a port for connecting a USB external drive.
The initial hardware will be based on specific third party processor PCBs / enclosures. The software will be based on the Linux Operating System and a number of open-source applications; such as Samba (CIFS server), GlusterFS (distributed file system) etc. However, the high-level control, low-level Ethernet protocol filtered bridging, management software an automatic installation scripts has been designed and implemented by Agilstor Ltd to provide the ease-of-use for both installation and day to day working.
A prototype has been implemented that demonstrates the major features.
