Introducing InfraScale™

Cloud computing pioneers to power truly secure cloud storage, collaboration, and cloud-brokerage solutions.

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, InfraScale™ announced that it has been formed as the new parent entity of FileLocker™, SOS Online Backup™, and Enterprise Protect™. The creation of InfraScale institutionalizes a truly secure and massively scalable cloud infrastructure currently powering over one thousand online backup and cloud storage brands.

InfraScale has been transformed from a single product, SOS Online Backup, into a cloud software platform capable of storing and protecting millions of individual company data storage accounts, collaboration customers, and sharing over a billion files.  

While InfraScale's introduction to the world was as the support system of SOS Online Backup, its capabilities have grown immensely over the course of six years. It now powers a premium cloud collaboration solution (FileLocker), a data backup and recovery service capable of complete failover (Enterprise Protect), and its flag-ship product SOS Online Backup.  In addition to these in-house brands, more than 1,000 other cloud service brands run from the InfraScale platform.

Ken Shaw, CEO and Founder of InfraScale has guided the solution from its infancy, to its current platform, which powers backup and collaboration for a variety of sectors, including legal, government, hospitality, and finance. "I'm very excited to be able to take SOS Online Backup through this transformation. The cloud computing industry is experiencing incredible growth – as are we.  But we need a brand that can scale and speak to all of the things that our software can do, and not pigeon-hole us into one particular use-case.  We have cloud backup solutions, but also collaboration solutions, mobile solutions, archiving solution and end-point protection solutions.  InfraScale will be known for all of that – and not just online backup."

Shaw points out that InfraScale's core competency does not stop at operating and building a public cloud computing and storage grid. "The storage and cloud computing industry is shifting to one that requires the use of a variety of cloud platforms. This is why we're taking all of our solutions to a 'your cloud, our cloud, any cloud' deployment model. We're a cloud software company, and at the end of the day we don't care whose metal you use.  If you use one of our applications, you'll be able to deploy it nearly anywhere you'd like."

Headquartered in El Segundo, California, with offices in Kiev, Ukraine and Chennai, India, InfraScale's cloud platform runs from eleven data centers on five continents.   InfraScale's platform connects mobile, desktop and cloud and powers FileLocker, Enterprise Protect, SOS Online Backup and over one thousand independent cloud service companies, VARs and MSPs.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
