Tuxera

Tuxera provides reliable, high-performance storage management software for a data-driven world. Tuxera works with all the top Tier-1 suppliers and car manufacturers to deliver power fail-safe storage software – file systems, flash management, and flash testing services. Tuxera solutions fit into all data-critical automotive systems – Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Digital Video Recorder (DVR), Event Data Recorder (EDR), digital cluster, infotainment, and telematics. With Tuxera software, Tuxera aims to end storage related challenges including:

  • Loss of user data
  • Loss of device functionality
  • Data loss that risks mission-critical operations
  • Performance bottlenecks
  • Early flash burnout

Tuxera is a major contributor to the Linux community and a member of flash memory standards organizations, like SD Association and JEDEC. Tuxera works with world-leading chipset, memory vendors and operating system software providers to develop edge storage solutions of tomorrow. Tuxera’s patented software optimizes the read-and-write performance of automotive flash memory, provides proven data integrity and power fail safety, and reduces the lifetime-degrading effects of write and erase wear.

Tuxera has a long-standing partnership with Arm and the rest of the companies in the Arm mobility ecosystem. This close collaboration has played a key role in helping us optimize our storage software stack to run on Arm-based chips – which power over 85% of car infotainment systems and many other under-the-hood applications. The automotive market represents a significant part of our business and our customers’ preferred platforms and SoCs are based on Arm technology. This choice is driven by Arm’s continuous investment and commitment to innovate and tackle the changing, complex requirements of the automotive industry – values that both Tuxera and Arm share.

Automotive workloads – increasingly driven by the growing amount of data generated and processed – demand flexibility and ability to scale without losing an inch of reliability and robustness. Hardware and software systems must work closely together to address these requirements and the vision of truly connected and autonomous cars. Arm and Tuxera are part of a crucial network of players that are enabling the past, present, and future of automotive technology.”
