Technology Corporation
, announced data compression and
replication applications that integrate with Permabit
Albireo Virtual Data Optimizer


The addition of Albireo COMPRESS and
REPLICA to VDO's de-dupe and thin provisioning capabilities provide
building blocks for OEMs delivering Linux based software-defined storage solutions.

COMPRESS works with VDO's de-dupe
technology to reduce storage requirements by up to 35x. REPLICA is a
remote file copy service that works in concert with VDO to provide
data optimization for content both over the wire and at rest. These
products allow OEMs to deliver the scalable storage solutions in the
market, with minimum investment in time, resources and capital.
Combined with VDO, the applications improve data efficiency for NAS,
SAN, flash, and object storage solutions for SMB, large enterprise
and cloud markets.

"Permabit has already delivered
data efficiency technologies to OEMs via the data deduplication and
thin provisioning capabilities found in its Albireo VDO solution,
said Dan Iacono, storage systems, IDC. "By adding integrated
products for inline compression and replication into the VDO stack,
Permabit will be providing its partners with a comprehensive
portfolio of data efficiency and storage services to its partners.
This is a smart, evolutionary move by Permabit.

It compacts unique data seen for the
first time. Subsequent copies of that data already stored on disk are
de-duplicated by VDO without requiring the additional compression
step, saving CPU cycles. Good use cases include databases, backup,
user files, and log files.

It provides both file replication
between VDO-enabled storage devices and remote file copy from any
supported device to VDO-enabled storage. The application leverages
VDO de-dupe to combine data transfer with reduced storage costs. It is
suited for full and incremental backup, offsite DR and data transfer
to the cloud.

"It is exciting to see great
traction for Albireo VDO with Cloud, Flash Array, SMB NAS and Data
Protection OEMs,
" said Tom Cook, Permabit CEO. "Adding
COMPRESS and REPLICA to VDO allows OEMs to deliver game-changing
value to their customers with the most efficient, scalable and
highest performing storage efficiency technologies in the market.

COMPRESS and REPLICA will be available
to OEMs on May 31, 2013
