Micro Strategies Inc. Joins Permabit Channel to Supply SANblox Data Reduction Appliance
CAMBRIDGE, Mass – November 18, 2015 – Permabit Technology Corporation, the industry leader in data reduction technology, today announced Micro Strategies Inc., a leading worldwide provider of enterprise software platforms, 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.
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 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.
“Micro Strategies 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 VP of Sales. “We are thrilled to welcome Micro Strategies 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 Ray Scardelli, VP Sales, Micro Strategies. 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.”
