Sihua Tech is expanding its storage portfolio, based on the Neustor scale out HDD disk platform, with the introduction of the Kaixiang flash storage array. The array comes in two different versions with either SAS or nVME connected SSD storage. By incorporating Permabit's data efficiency technologies, Sihua Tech is able to offer its customers a scalable, high performing and resource-efficient inline deduplication, compression and thin provisioning. This allows Sihua Tech to provide an all flash array solution to the Chinese market.
"The expansion of our storage portfolio with the addition of the Kaixiang flash storage array allows us to deliver high performance enterprise storage to our customers," said Yilang Sun, chairman, Sihua Tech. "We made a careful comparison of data efficiency software offerings and realized Permabit's VDO was a great fit for enhancing the capabilities of our storage products. By partnering with Permabit, we are able to provide flash storage at the most cost effective price, without sacrificing performance, allowing for broader adoption in primary storage applications."
Albireo VDO is designed to embed directly into vendor-specific data management software, allowing it to scale with the capabilities of the underlying hardware and software of Sihua Tech's flash storage array. It improves native write performance by eliminating duplicate data, and utilizes fewer hardware resources than any other data efficiency solution available today. Albireo's patented indexing technology is a resource efficient solution ensuring that performance and scalability do not come at the expense of massive amounts of RAM consumption.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Sihua Tech," said Tom Cook, CEO, Permabit. "By embedding Albireo VDO into its all-flash storage, Sihua Tech is able to get to market quickly with must-have, industry-leading data efficiency capabilities."
