Tuxera, a storage software and networking technology company, has signed an agreement to acquire HCC Embedded. The Hungarian company develops embedded file systems, flash management, and network data transfer software. HCC Embedded will officially operate as Tuxera Hungary.

The Finnish company Tuxera now offers a comprehensive range of software and services for managing data as it is stored, used, and moved in and between embedded systems. The acquisition deepens Tuxera’s commitment to deliver reliable data management solutions in a world increasingly fueled and vitalized by data.

Since its founding in 2002, HCC Embedded has emphasized quality and information security, achieving both ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management and ISO 27001 Information Security Management standards. This complements Tuxera’s focus on serving its customers with demanding safety- and mission-critical data requirements, particularly in the automotive industry. Safety design standards and increasingly rigorous regulations continue to put more demand on embedded systems designs – not only in the automotive sector, but in the avionics, aerospace, medical, rail and shipping transport, and industrial automation industries as well.

Deeper flash storage knowledge

The acquisition also brings deep hardware enablement knowledge and expertise to Tuxera, allowing the company’s storage management software to interact more closely and optimally with an even wider range of hardware environments. Additionally, HCC Embedded brings an extensive range of MISRA-compliant networking products to Tuxera’s portfolio, covering domains such as network management, security, and TCP/IP applications. These new products will enrich Tuxera’s expertise beyond fail-safe storage and management of data-at-rest and data-at-use, to encompass the reliable and secure transport of data in, out, and through limitless data-driven, connected devices.

Data management solutions

Since 1983, Tuxera has been developing fail-safe, high-performance software for managing data. The company’s solutions have shipped in billions of consumer devices and vehicles to date. Tuxera develops proprietary implementations of industry-standard file systems such as FAT, exFAT, and NTFS, as well as its own range of proprietary embedded file systems, flash management software, and network storage solutions.

The combined engineering teams of the two companies now encompasses experts in file systems, flash memory, embedded storage, and networking technology around the globe. Their experience and understanding of data storage and transfer technology covers any operating system or real-time operating system, any flash memory type, any hardware environment, any storage interface, and a wide range of network protocols.

The merging of the two companies will bring benefits to customers, such as:

  • storage management support for a broad range of devices – from embedded, to vehicles, aircraft, and spacecraft, and for all consumer and industrial IoT devices.
  • improved file system performance, data reliability, flash memory lifetime, and hardware costs reduction
  • data storage support for both managed and unmanaged flash memory
  • USB mass storage, USB device, and host drivers
  • industry-standard, fail-safe file systems like FAT, exFAT, NTFS, APFS, and HFS+
  • industry-standard network data transfer and file sharing protocols support, such as IPv4/6 and SMB
  • flash memory quality and cost evaluation services
