IceWEB Unified Storage Systems Designed to Thwart Silent Data Corruption in the Cloud
STERLING, Va., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — IceWEB, Inc.(TM) (OTCBB: IWEB), www.IceWEB.com, a leading provider of Unified Data Storage and building blocks for cloud storage networks, announced today that its 256-bit, error-correcting checksum codes are able to protect critical user data from the silent corruption that occurs when large amounts of data are being moved, which is very often the case with large storage clouds.
IceWEB’s end-to-end, 256-bit checksum technology detects and remedies silent (undetected) data corruption. This is particularly important in commercial applications such as banking where an undetected error could either change data or corrupt a database index and drastically affect an account balance. It becomes almost mandatory in the use of encrypted or compressed data where a small error can make a dataset unusable.
“Silent data corruption problems are exacerbated in the cloud, where it’s all about centralized storage,” said Ed Kraus, IceWEB Operations VP. “Without CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) technology, it’s not a matter of ‘if’ but a question of ‘how much’ data corruption will occur. The problem becomes even more dangerous as drive sizes, RAID volumes, memory, data and operating systems get larger and larger. Thus our CRC, error-correcting checksum technology has become one of our most important and popular features.”
