The Center, established at the University of California, Santa Cruz and the University of Minnesota, has been a National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center since 2009, developing new technologies and techniques to improve the usability, scalability, security, reliability, and performance of storage systems.
Permabit's contribution to CRIS will support continued advance R&D to improve the efficiency of storage systems. Permabit's innovation will be added to the expertise of researchers and storage companies including EMC, HP, IBM, Los Alamos National Laboratory, National Science Foundation, NetApp, Northrop Grumman, Samsung, Seagate and Xyratex.
"Our members, including Permabit, along with leading university researchers share royalty free access to IP being developed," said Ethan L. Miller, CRIS site director, University of California, Santa Cruz. "This allows member companies to leverage their existing investment in IP even further and enhance innovation in cutting edge technologies like deduplication, archival storage, searchable file systems, provenance and metadata, and new storage device technologies including flash memory and shingled disk."
In 2010, Permabit introduced its Albireo Data Optimization Software, an OEM embedded data optimization software. Albireo is a portable software library that improves performance and efficiency of data creation, transmission and storage. Solutions with Albireo inside are delivered by hardware, software and service providers.
"Permabit is committed to driving innovation, and the adoption of data optimization technologies for all users regardless of size of company," said Jered Floyd, CTO and founder of Permabit. "The collaboration and sharing of research at the CRIS is unparalleled in the industry and we're excited to be joining efforts with many of the world's leading technology companies."
