Permabit Technology Corporation, in data efficiency technology, has joined the EMC Select Program.

Under the partnership, EMC will sell SANblox through its sales and reseller channels, providing a ready-to-run data efficiency appliance for new and existing EMC FC SANs.

The SANblox appliance, which leverages Permabit's Albireo VDO and HIO/s compression software, provides 'plug and save' data reduction across a range of applications, including mixed virtual server, VDI, database (OLTP and data warehouse) and big data environments. EMC customers who purchase SANblox can increase the effective capacity of their SANs by 6X, drop effective cost by up to 85% and increase performance by up to 400%.

"We are committed to helping our partners expand market share by providing field tested data efficiency solutions that deliver competitive advantage and enable them to get to market quickly," said Tom Cook, Permabit CEO. "We are thrilled to join the EMC Select Program and to make SANblox available to the market via the leading EMC sales force and expansive channel partner network."

SANblox will be available during Q4 2014 through EMC Select.
