Big Parity® from StreamScale leads the industry in RAID reliability and processing speed, eliminating data loss and corruption due to disk failure, service errors, silent data corruption, and unrecoverable read errors. 30X faster than competitive RAID systems, Big Parity is the only product that provides advanced Verified Erasure Coding® which enable up to 127 parity drives to keep data safe and accurate during long data analysis cycles or rebuilds.


StreamScale was established in 2007 by a group of storage industry veterans. StreamScale's mission is to develop and license Intellectual Property related to storage systems and their applications. Products developed to date include NumaRAID®, a RAID stack specifically designed to harness the power of multi-core processors, RAIDNext®, which extends the NumaRAID stack into multi-controller configurations (a RAID of RAIDs), and Big Parity, the first Verified Erasure Coding® library.

StreamScale's founders, advisors and investors include some of the most prominent names in storage, entertainment and electronic media industries. With engineering offices and dealer organizations worldwide, the company's current focus is on Big Data storage and applications.

StreamScale founder Michael H. Anderson is a 20 year veteran of the storage industry, with 12 granted patents dating back to the 1980's, and the author of numerous industry publications. He is responsible for a number of industry firsts, including the first commercial RAID5 system, the first AV optimized disk drive, the first disk based video server, and now the first Verified Erasure Coding® library, Big Parity.


Big Parity combines a deep knowledge of how to scale computationally intensive numeric algorithms in a multi-core and many-core (MIC) environment with a new application of Erasure Coding. Compatible with Linux (GCC), Mac OS X (GCC) and Windows (Intel), Big Parity extends traditional RAID5(N+1) and RAID6(N+2) implementations into N+(3:127). It's Verified Erasure Coding® totally eliminates Silent Data Corruption and Silent Data Corruption Amplification in Big Data applications. In addition, it offers 7-30x the performance of competing Open Source Erasure Coding systems, making it immediately deployable in Big Data applications using standard X86 processors.

All of the Intellectual Property developed by StreamScale is available to license. Contact us now to get more information on how your organization can take advantage of Big Parity.
