APIs for a number of development tools
You can use SolFS Application Edition in your application, developed using C or C++ on Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, MacOSX and iPhone, Java on Android, using CodeGear Delphi or C++Builder on Windows, using .NET Framework development tools. Also SolFS is offered as an ActiveX control and as a DLL library on Windows, and as static and shared object (.so) libraries on Linux and FreeBSD. This provides maximum portability of your application and your data.
Great alternative to archive file formats
Archive file formats, such as ZIP, are often used as a universal solution for compound files and virtual filesystems. However, archives have certain shortcomings and drawbacks which prevent them from being used effectively. SolFS is free from such shortcomings. For example, see SolFS vs. ZIP comparison.
SolFS offers a file system engine, that can be embedded into applications on all major operating systems (Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, MacOS X, Windows Mobile, Android, iPhone) as well as various custom hardware and software platforms. SolFS supports extensible encryption and compression, custom file tags, file and storage metadata, support for Unicode file names and more.
Use Solid File System in your applications, which you create for various software and hardware platforms, from Windows and MacOS X desktops to Unix and Linux servers to mobile devices.
Easy data management
Store your application data in a single container and simplify data backup and manipulation by exposing only one container file to the end-user. You can even keep the container in a custom place (in application resources or in the database) thus hiding it from the end-user completely. If you considered a database as a storage for your project here are 7 reasons to choose a file system (SolFS) over the database for managing your application data.
Strong data protection
Improve security of your documents and data and prevent unauthorized access to them by applying industry-adopted data encryption mechanisms. Transparent strong encryption based on 256-bit AES algorithm can be applied to a wide range of entities: from a single file stream to a whole file storage. And if you need to meet stronger requirements of improving security level, you can always add your own encryption schemas, including public key cryptography.
Transparent compression of data
Get more storage for your files and perform data transfer or backup faster without investing into more hardware by using built-in data compression. Compression works transparently and can be combined with data encryption. Industry-standard ZLib compression can be applied to selected or every file, and can be replaced by your own compression algorithms if required.
Backed by the Cloud
SolFS can store data virtually everywhere, for example in cloud storages.
Huge Storage Capacity
SolFS allows creation of really huge storages to meet your current and future data storage needs. Maximum storage size is 256 Terabytes. This gives you virtually unlimited possibilities for storing large amounts of data on physical media, including distributed locations.
