At DataPlow, our mission is to develop and distribute software that shares the world’s electronically stored data, efficiently and securely.
Our file system software facilitates transparent and cost-effective data management for a broad spectrum of devices, including consumer electronics, workstations, servers, and supercomputers.
While canoeing in the Boundary Waters, conversations about transferring electronic data evolved into ideas about creating robust, yet secure, file sharing for a wide range of environments. During a fireside chat, a new file system architecture was invented and a new company was conceived. Upon returning to civilization, the founders set in motion plans for making DataPlow the premier vendor of SAN-based file systems.
Much has happened since that 1997 trip. Ingenious engineering and unequalled customer service propagated key partnerships that sparked a cult-like following. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of so many, DataPlow SFS has become the most widely used SAN file system in the world.
