Mainline Information Systems Joins Permabit Channel

Will Supply SANblox Data Reduction Appliance

CAMBRIDGE, Mass – September 29, 2015 – Permabit Technology Corporation, the industry leader in data reduction technology, today announced Mainline Information Systems, Inc., headquartered in Tallahassee, Florida, has joined the company’s partner network of solution providers, value-added resellers and distributors, bringing Permabit’s Albireo SANblox™ appliance to the IT marketplace.

Mainline is an information technology solutions and IT consulting firm with more than 500 employees nationwide, providing information technology solutions throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and Brazil, and will provide its customers with Permabit SANblox data reduction appliances as an integral part of its storage solution offerings.

Permabit SANblox is a unique data reduction appliance for Fibre Channel-attached storage that pairs Permabit’s industry-leading deduplication index with its best in class HIOPS Compression™ technology. It delivers immediate data reduction for flash, hybrid and/or HDD storage products across a wide range of applications, including virtual server, VDI, copy data, database (OLTP and data warehouse), analytics and Big Data environments.

SANblox can be deployed in a matter of hours for immediate storage savings in all-flash, hybrid, or HDD environments. With inline data reduction, storage savings from deduplication and compression are realized immediately, while increasing effective capacity and reducing costs. SANblox deployment flexibility also enables selective use of deduplication and/or compression on data stores, enabling users to choose the data reduction techniques that best meet their needs.

“Mainline excels at guiding customers through the changing storage marketplace, and Permabit’s data reduction technology helps by enabling high performance, high capacity storage at dramatically reduced TCO,” said Scott Skidmore, Permabit Vice President of Sales. “We are thrilled to welcome Mainline to Permabit’s reseller and distributor network and are fully committed to their success.”

“SANblox allows us to immediately deliver the industry’s highest performing, most scalable and lowest footprint data reduction to our customers with Fibre Channel SAN environments,” said Bob Elliott, Vice President, Storage Systems. “Customers who incorporate SANblox in their hybrid, disk and flash storage arrays can immediately increase their storage capacity and reduce their operating costs, with little to no impact on performance and minimal change to their existing environments.”
