CBFS Storage

Store a Complete Filesystem Anywhere

CBFS Storage is an all-in-one file storage solution that allows you to create and embed a high-performance filesystem anywhere—hard drives, flash cards, custom-built hardware, database records, raw memory, and anywhere else data can be persisted. Your application will benefit from features such as automatic storage management, multithreaded read/write operations, custom file attributes and tags, and more. Plus, the added peace of mind knowing that your data is secure thanks to built-in support for modern data encryption.

CBFS Storage Multiple Files

Consolidate and Organize Multiple Files

By embedding a complete filesystem within a single file, CBFS Storage allows you to consolidate and organize your application's data rather than having it scattered across numerous files. Storing everything in one place decreases data fragmentation, and simplifies data maintenance (copying, moving, etc.) and disaster recovery. The self-contained nature of a CBFS Storage filesystem is also highly beneficial for use-cases that require fast access to many files at once, such as modern video games.

Maintain Data Integrity

CBFS Storage uses journaling to help maintain the integrity of your data. Anytime the filesystem's contents are changed (data is written, a directory is renamed, etc.), information about the change is recorded in a special log file internally. If the operation is interrupted unexpectedly, CBFS Storage uses this information to restore the filesystem's integrity. The fact that end-users don't have direct access to your data also affords it a certain level of protection, since it prevents accidental deletions and other unwanted modifications that could cause your application to misbehave.

CBFS Storage Speed

Streamline Data Access

Applications that utilize a large number of files (documents, multimedia, code, etc.) typically end up sending many requests to the filesystem. This may have noticeable impacts on performance due to the specifics of typical filesystem drivers. CBFS Storage reduces the amount of time needed to access your data since its engine operates completely in user mode, and requires few calls to the filesystem.

Handle Compound File Formats

As the desire for "richer" user experiences continues increase, it's not uncommon for applications to require file formats comprised of several independent parts, or that utilize some sort of embedded metadata. Video files, for example, typically contain not only video content, but also audio tracks and subtitles for one or more languages, plus additional metadata about the video itself. CBFS Storage provides features such as alternate data streams, application-defined attributes, and custom metadata; allowing you to work with compound file formats easily and efficiently.

Secure Data with Modern Encryption

CBFS Storage includes support for both per-file and whole-file-system encryption mechanisms, so that you—and your end-users—can be confident that your application's data is safe and secure at all times. Applications may rely on either the modern cryptographic algorithms that come built-in, or provide their own encryption implementation via well-defined extension points in the CBFS Storage API.
