Permabit Technology Corporation launched a Windows-based version of its Albireo Software Development Kit (SDK) that allows service providers and hardware and software OEMs to integrate storage optimization capabilities into their existing solutions without negatively impacting differentiating capabilities or reducing overall performance.
Albireo is being incorporated into OEM offerings from vendors including newly-announced data protection, cloud services, enterprise SAN and NAS, virtualization, and flash solutions. The introduction of a Windows version of Albireo greatly the market reach for OEMs looking to provide cross platform support to organizations regardless of operating environment. More specifically the new SDK version enables Windows-based OEMs to deploy inline, multiple petabyte, performance deduplication in a low memory footprint.
"Permabit continues to extend the utility of its Albireo technology with the addition of a Windows based SDK to their solutions for OEMs. Broadening the applicability of Albireo will further enable Permabit to deliver industry-leading deduplication technology to OEMS in enterprise storage, data protection and cloud implementations. They are setting the industry standard for deduplication," says George Crump of Storage Switzerland.
"We are excited to announce Albireo SDK for Windows to enable our OEM customers to address a market that will exceed $8 billion," said Tom Cook, CEO of Permabit. "By popular demand high-performance data optimization comes to Windows."
Like the Linux version, the Windows Albireo SDK contains the Albireo software library, API documentation, code samples and application notes for integration with primary, archive and backup storage solutions. Permabit provides technical assistance to ensure integration. OEM customers typically implement Albireo deduplication in less than five days. Independent validation has demonstrated that Albireo offers 5-35X data reduction for general purpose environments through to virtual environments.
