Folio Corporation was founded in 1987 by Curt Allen and his brother-in-law Brad Pelo. It quickly gained recognition for helping other companies to publish content on local area networks and on digital CD-ROMs for use on desktop computers. Allen and Pelo were both students at BYU; Allen was in mechanical engineering and Pelo was in public policy. During the 1986 summer break, they began working on a computer program that would index, compress, and continually update text information. Success came in 1988 when Novell agreed to provide a read-only version of Folio's software with every NetWare operating system that Novell shipped.
