This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2015.11.20
Permabit Technology Corporation has added two patents to its portfolio of technology innovations - the third and fourth awarded to the company this year - bringing the total number of patents issued since company inception to 37.
The two patents include:
U.S. Patent No. 9,177,175, which describes techniques by which a storage client can securely write data into a data repository without necessarily being able to access or delete items from that repository. One application of the patent could be to build a backup agent capable of backing up a system, but where a security compromise of that system would not introduce risk to the other data in the storage repository.
U.S. Patent No. 9,104,716, which covers data retention in a distributed storage system where data retention is enforced by maintaining multiple non-decrementing reference counts corresponding to different ranges of time in the future, as opposed to, for example, having a fixed expiration point.
"Intellectual property is the lifeblood of our company and a key differentiator in our ability to deliver data reduction solutions that uniquely provide performance, scale, resource efficiency and portability across a wide range of storage platforms and architectures," said Jered Floyd, CTO, Permabit. "These latest patents are an example of our commitment to advancing the state-of-the-art in storage efficiency.
