Permabit Technology Corporation announced that its Albireo Virtual Data Optimizer (VDO) software has exceeded the one million IO/s performance barrier for inline data deduplication enabling it to be integrated into the highest performing enterprise storage arrays.

The latest version of Albireo VDO has been updated to take advantage of multi-core, multi-processor, scale-out architectures to deliver performance. To demonstrate this performance, Permabit has assembled a reference storage system from industry standard components including a dual processor server based on the Sandy Bridge architecture and off-the-shelf flash cards.

The reference architecture delivers over 1 million sequential 4K IO/s (4GB/s) and 500,000 random (2GB/s) under workloads generated using the flexible I/O tester (fio). These results are three or more times faster than the published deduplication performance numbers of other high-end storage arrays.

Enterprises deploy high-end storage systems to increase the performance of mission critical and I/O intensive applications such as databases, virtual servers and virtual desktops. While deduplication reduces storage costs, the challenge up until now has been developing a deduplication algorithm that could run at the high-end of enterprise speeds. Albireo VDO is an inline deduplication technology that can scale to high-end enterprise speeds and petabyte-sized deployments.

"Data efficiency has burst on to the storage scene as a high-value product requirement," said Tom Cook, CEO, Permabit. "Breaking the one million IO/s barrier with inline deduplication means even the highest performing storage arrays will have advanced data efficiency incorporated over the next two years. The result is a huge windfall for IT efficiency."

"Permabit is once again raising the bar for data optimization," said Mark Peters, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. "By exceeding one million IO/s in its latest version of Albireo VDO, it is further proving the logic and value that means inline deduplication can, should, and will be, in every enterprise storage system."
