Tuxera and Linksys join provide better home network storage applications experience


Enterprise IT vendor Tuxera said that its network storage software powers MAX-STREAM MU-MIMO routers from Linksys including the EA8500 and the newly launched EA7500, a MU-MIMO AC1900 Wi-Fi router.

The Tuxera Network Storage Accelerator software boosts read and write performance on external hard drives connected to select Linksys routers via USB connections at up to 300 percent improvement.

“The Tuxera software allows our Linux platform to understand and write to drives formatted with these file systems at high speeds and overall better experience for our customers,” said Dan Wang, Director of Product Development, Linksys.

Coupled with an external drive, Linksys MAX-STREAM EA8500 and EA7500 help deliver the fastest network storage data rivaling even the high-end dedicated NAS servers.

“Linksys routers outfitted with powerful software and hardware answer the challenges of the modern connected home. With low CPU consumption, there is more room for services and applications to run at the same time without any slow down or interference,” addedArnaud Petit, Global Sales Director at Tuxera.
