Paragon Universal File System Drivers (UFSD)
A file system is a crucial component of any operating system and operating systems can mostly only deal with their native one. Since almost every OS has its own file system, the present day IT environment is overwhelmed with different types of file systems and the incompatibility between them. To be competitive and versatile, your device desperately needs a bridge between different file systems.
Paragon Software, as one of the crucial players in the storage management field, has recognized that need for several years already and developed a technology (UFSD) that enables to establish read/write access to various file systems under various operating systems. It’s based on the direct access to physical drives and buffered input/output access, that is why it makes it possible to process unsupported partitions (browse contents, read and modify files, copy and create new files and folders, etc.) while keeping an impressive level of performance.
What You Can Get With Our Technology
Paragon technology of building a universal file system driver has already proved its market value by finding a wide application in various spheres of life.
Paragon Products Integration
Most of the company products have been successfully using Paragon UFSD technology for years already. Our customers give high praise to our technology and keep emphasizing advantages it offers over the competitors.
Network Storage Integration
The desire for low-cost, highly integrated, easily managed network storage is the reason that network attached storage (NAS) servers as well as routers with storage features are the choice of more and more small and medium-sized companies. With our technology you can obtain a cost effective and easy-to-manage network storage that will access various file systems, no matter what operating system it has.
Multimedia Device Integration
Modern multimedia stations, based mostly on Windows and Linux platforms, provide the ability to process video from various sources and store it onto external media. With our technology, you can enjoy a multimedia device that will write data onto external media of any file system, doesn´t matter on which OS the multimedia device is based.
Anti-Virus (Malware) Integration
The present day viruses are sophisticated and really difficult to neutralize. As an example, let’s just take the so called rootkit, a virus that conceals itself in the file system hidden entries. To detect it, an anti-virus program needs a facility of accessing file systems independently from the current operating system to compare the amount of data obtained directly and the amount of data reported by the file system, actually the only way to neutralize it.
With our technology you can equip your anti-virus software with a system independent file system driver to detect and neutralize any type of viruses as well as get full and secure access to any file system.
Ultra-Mobile PC Integration
In the pursuit of minimizing the prime cost, manufactures prefer to use Linux as the default operating system for Ultra-Mobile PCs. It’s free and efficient, but it cannot grant access to NTFS-based storage devices.
With our technology you can expand the file system support of your Linux.
Digital Control System Integration
So platforms originally UNIX-embedded for instance are now based on Windows and Linux. But these operating systems cannot provide access to storages formatted to file systems of that time.
With our technology you don’t need to worry about incompatibility of various file systems at all.
Windows Explorer (Shell) Integration
Our technology can be easily integrated with the Windows Name Space Shell Extension mechanism, thus providing the option to grant fast and transparent access to non-Windows native file systems with the minimal efforts possible
One technology – millions of solutions
There are thousands of different scenarios where the incompatibility between file systems can give you a hard time.
Our solution is easy to integrate in almost every system and you can therefore spare the nerves of your developers and increase the customer satisfaction at the same time.
