Sponsored by Businesswire

today announced that it was granted two new patents in the first quarter
of 2019, honoring the company’s innovative approach to high-performance,
enterprise-class storage that offers complete data protection with no
performance degradation and lower costs than the cloud. Patent No.
10198321 entitled “System and method for continuous data protection”
recognized StorONE’s approach to integrated data retention without
compromising on performance, and Patent No. 10169021 entitled “System
and method for deploying a data-path-related plug-in for a logical
storage entity of a storage system” addresses creating, verifying and
executing tasks that ensure availability of data in distributed storage
systems. Both inventions allow enterprises to use their high-performance
tier for complete data protection.

Among the patent portfolio created since the company’s founding, the
number of StorONE’s granted patents is now 33, with tens of patent
applications pending. StorONE has been able to gain many approvals of
its innovative technology patents in a very short period of time,
largely due to the fact that it is based upon greenfield innovation and
new thinking that lacks the constraints placed upon it by legacy
applications. StorONE has invested heavily in massive research and
development efforts to achieve maximum performance with minimal hardware
by achieving a transformational breakthrough in storage software

Patent Attorney, Inna Novikova, Partner at Reinhold Cohn, the largest
Intellectual Property firm in Israel, has commented that “StorONE’s
patent portfolio is a valuable asset created to successfully support the
company’s business goals. A high number of patents secured over such a
relatively small period of time is indicative of disruptive innovations
implemented in software-defined storage by StorONE.”

StorONE’s patented technology can support multiple enterprise functions:
it can reach breakthrough performance from AFA, SSD and NVMe solutions,
create high performance multi-application secondary storage systems,
supply persistent storage to virtualized environments, and/or use
lower-cost commodity components to provide high capacity low footprint
solutions. As the only storage vendor to enable high performance,
capacity and virtual appliance in a single product, StorONE offers more
flexibility, with all options available, to eliminate the need for
future planning – companies can grow their IT resources as they need.

“When creating StorONE, we had the choice to do what other vendors do
and leverage existing approaches to simply bring a product to market, or
to become a core technology company backed by disruptive new and
innovative technologies that revolutionize the industry,” commented Gal
Naor, StorONE co-founder and CEO. “Our ever-expanding patent portfolio
is proof that better technology enables better results. We have been
able to take all the improvements in drive technology and innovation –
high performance, density and price reduction – to new levels to deliver
complete data protection and secondary storage in a single powerful
solution with immediate ROI.”

About StorONE

StorONE was created to prove that for the first time, enterprises no
longer have to compromise to solve their biggest data performance,
protection and complexity issues. StorONE’s TRU™ SDS is the most
complete storage software solution on the market. It is the first and
only software solution that can be used for an all-flash or hybrid

supports all protocols (block, file and object) – all powered by the
same software. At the same time, the StorONE S1 software delivers
complete optimization of any hardware, and it is completely future
proof. This creates a dramatic reduction in the cost and management of
enterprise storage and maximizes flexibility to take advantage of the
most recent hardware innovations, making the life of the data center
manager easier. StorONE is led by a team with a proven track record of
changing the data storage industry and backed by a board that includes
industry visionaries from three of the largest companies in the world.
