re: Startup offers FAT32 for Android, Linux

We have been building and supporting complex, interoperable file systems since 1999. Started with NTFS then added exFAT, HFS+, XFS and others. FAT32 is one of the latest additions to Tuxera's product portfolio. This has been regulary requested by Tuxera's partners and customers to address legal, legacy, technical, and support issues to lower manufacturing costs and increase end-user experience. Software and hardware change rapidly, maintenance costs can add up quickly, delay time-to-market in case of file systems which need extra care, attention and resources. Additionally, GPL licensing sometimes may not be the optimal supporting proprietary hardware extensions. Tuxera is closely working with chipset companies to achieve the best file system performance, maximize battery life, minimize power use which add value for end-users. Regarding cloud file systems, we see the two (network/local) still complementary even if they have many common technical challenges.

Building FAT32 compatible filesystem as a product for startup is very interesting. FAT32 is far from the best filesystem. As network storage becomes popular and network storage device is likely build from Linux, the support of high capacity file/ storage shall not be an issue. What's the competitive advantage of the product? Compatibility to Windows may be one of them. Any comments?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
