Permabit certified VDO with Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS and has been qualified for use in OpenStack environments. In addition, it will deliver support for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS next quarter.
VDO data reduction enables organizations to reduce their storage footprint, increasing data density, and avoiding data center expansions.
Global 2000 customers in the telecom and financial sectors are using VDO to fit more data into their existing storage. VDO is available through Permabit's network of integration partners.
Ubuntu is at the forefront of large cloud infrastructure deployments, thanks to Canonical's experience in building clouds for its customers and its involvement in the OpenStack project as a founding member. Ubuntu is also optimized and certified for popular public clouds - allowing organizations the opportunity to use Ubuntu wherever they choose to run their applications and services.
"We are pleased to partner with Permabit with their Linux data reduction offering VDO as they become part of Canonical's Juju Charm ecosystem," said Stefan Johansson, global software alliances director, Canonical. "Permabit recognizes the value of open storage standards, open source software, interoperability, and scale out infrastructure provided by Juju and Ubuntu OpenStack as key components of today's enterprise and cloud service provider data centers."
Permabit announced the latest release of its Virtual Data Optimizer (VDO) software, VDO 6 - the modular data reduction solution available for the Linux block storage stack. VDO delivers the company's patented deduplication, HIO/s Compression and thin provisioning in a commercial software package for Linux for enterprise hybrid cloud data centers and cloud service providers.
"We are pleased to deliver the industry-leading Linux data reduction solution to Canonical service providers and community," said Tom Cook, CEO and president. "Now, with VDO, Ubuntu users can achieve greater density and realize massive savings on data center investment."
