Permabit CEO to Present at ABR Investment Strategy Event

CAMBRIDGE, Mass – August 6, 2013 – Tom Cook, CEO of Permabit Technology Corporation, the recognized leader in data efficiency technology, will lead off a series of presentations about the future of the data center hosted by ABR Investment Strategy and held in conjunction with Flash Memory Summit at 8:00 a.m. August 14 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California.

The ABR Investment Strategy event features one-hour presentations by leading technology providers on how storage in the data center is shifting.  The audience will be comprised of technology/media/telecom analysts and portfolio managers with an interest in the computing, storage and networking markets.  Cook, a frequent participant at financial industry events, will discuss how storage efficiency technologies, such as compression, replication, deduplication and thin provisioning are changing the overall storage landscape by enabling vendors to maximize performance, ensure reliability and manage scalability of their product offerings.  A Q-and-A session will immediately follow Cook’s speech.

“Technological advancements, such as the cloud, virtualization, flash and open systems/software defined storage, are changing the landscape of storage and are having a profound impact on IT today,” said Cook. “Data efficiency is critical to the widespread adoption of each of these innovations, making it the singularly most transformative technology in storage for the next decade.  I look forward to sharing with attendees of the ABR event how data deduplication, compression, thin provisioning and storage virtualization will help enterprises not only conquer their ever-increasing capacity needs but to actually gain the competitive advantage required to increase market share and build sustainable businesses.”
