The U.S. Patent and Trademarks Office recently notified APTARE that it has been granted a patent to create a “Catalog that Stores File System Metadata in an Optimized Manner.” This interesting news was found on The Sacramento Bee in their article, “The United States Patent & Trademark Office has Granted APTARE a Patent For Cataloging the Metadata for Billions of Files.”

This patent provides a method for the persistence and cataloging of billions of file and folder metadata contained in unstructured file systems through a highly efficient, optimized, and compact mechanism.

APTARE provides enterprise storage reporting, monitoring, and alerting software products designed to increase the efficiency of enterprise storage environments and reduce storage costs.
