Permabit Technology Corporation has expanded its presence in the Asian and Pacific marketplace with a new public customer and added an experienced AsiaPac sales executive to the team.
South Korea-based Samboo System Corporation integrated Permabit's Albireo Virtual Data Optimizer (VDO) into its Any Storage Dedupe Software (ASDS) to provide customers with data reduction benefits that reduce effective storage costs.
"Our customers have sought ways to reduce storage expenditures without sacrificing storage capabilities," said Yoo Chulho, CEO, Samboo. "To meet these expectations we are offering Any Storage Dedupe Software, which incorporates Permabit's leading data optimization technology that helps us deliver highly efficient storage at extremely competitive prices. While there were alternatives available, only VDO provided us with the complete, ready-to-run data optimization capabilities we were looking for that would allow us to quickly meet our customers' needs."
To address rising demand for data efficiency in AsiaPac based companies, Permabit has brought on Duk Chun.
Duk Chun has a wealth of experience in managing and growing technology businesses in the region and previously served as VP of AsiaPac for Fast Search & Transfer, a subsidiary of Microsoft. He has held senior management positions in AsiaPac sales, business development, and corporate development at Sun Microsystems and has worked for Silicon Graphics, MIPS Technologies, Andersen Consulting, and National Semiconductor.
He holds a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and a master's degree in Engineering Management from Stanford University.
"Enterprises the world over who are looking for ways to overcome the increasingly prohibitive costs of traditional storage have come to view data efficiency as key to this objective," said Tom Cook, Permabit CEO. "We have seen tremendous interest in our data efficiency technologies from OEMs across the Pacific Rim, and the addition of Duk Chun to our team will greatly accelerate our adoption in this region."
Data efficiency is increasingly considered a must-have feature for the latest generation of disk and flash, primary, archive and backup storage across the data center and the cloud. Permabit's Albireo line of products delivers deduplication, compression, thin provisioning and replication and can be flexibly integrated into existing or next-generation storage and platform architectures without negatively impacting product-specific capabilities or reducing performance.
The flexible architecture of Permabit's solutions allows for integration across product offerings, including enterprise SAN, enterprise NAS, enterprise Flash, RAID controllers, data protection and the cloud. OEMs around the world have licensed Permabit's technology to help differentiate their products, derive competitive advantage and accelerate their time to market.
