GreenBytes lands power consumption patent

Posted 3/28/12

HOPKINTON – GreenBytes Inc., developer of inline deduplication data storage solutions, won recognition from U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its method of allocating data on physical media by a file system that optimizes power consumption.

The allocation method significantly improves power efficiency and is available only in the GreenBytes globally optimized operating system found in its Solidarily, HA-3000 and GB-X Series product lines.

Prior attempts at limiting power consumption of large storage arrays consisted of many spinning magnetic discs, while the Rhode Island company’s newly patented technology limits consumption as a basic feature of the file operating system.

Users of products in GreenBytes’ globally optimized operating systems can keep a small active sub-set of their disk space at full power, while leaving the remaining disks in a low power state.

“GreenBytes is proud to be at the cutting-edge of green technology innovation, and this patent award provides significant validation as to the tremendous strides that are being taken to cut down on the power consumption of data storage appliances,” Bob Petrocelli, GreenBytes CEO, said in prepared remarks. “We will continue to innovate with both hardware and software efficiencies as we look to find new ways to reduce the carbon footprint of information.”
