Permabit Named Top Information Management and Storage Vendor by Data Mobility Group

Company’s ‘forward-thinking approach to data optimization’ earns it a place in storage industry analyst firm’s yearlong series

CAMBRIDGE, Mass – August 15, 2012 – Permabit Technology Corporation, the recognized leader in data efficiency technology, was named a Top Information Management and Storage Vendor by Data Mobility Group in a July 2012 article for its data deduplication technology.  The report was published by the storage industry analyst firm as part of a yearlong series highlighting leading technology providers.

Data Mobility Group, experts on the intersection of storage and information management, publishes a series of Top Vendor picks for 2012 throughout the year rooted in insightful research based on an intimate understanding of the information management and storage markets, competitive landscape and specific business issues.  Permabit’s inclusion in the annual roundup was made available to the firm’s Total Access subscription members in a three-page technology brief, which highlighted the company’s data optimization capabilities.

“Permabit’s significant contribution to the future of data optimization delivers what file, operating and storage system vendors have failed to deliver in the past: optimized storage capacity without unhealthy and unnecessary technology dependencies and processing overhead for read operations,” reads the report.  “Conceptually, Albireo is a brilliant solution and remains one-of-a-kind in the field of data optimization.  Engineers, software developers, vendors and end users in search of greater efficiency and smaller storage footprint from their products and infrastructures – sooner rather than later – cannot afford to overlook Permabit Albireo.”

Permabit Albireo is the industry’s first-and-only embedded data optimization software for OEMs, delivering data reduction rates of 5 to 35X and with throughput now exceeding 400 GB/sec at petabyte scale.  Albireo optimizes data across a wide range of installations from SOHO/SMB appliances to enterprise flash and Solid State Devices (SSD), high-performance enterprise storage, big data solutions and cloud services.

“Deduplication plays an important role in fiscally responsible information management.” said Joseph Martins, Managing Director of Data Mobility Group.  “And Permabit’s approach to data optimization surpassed what we previously thought possible earning it a spot on our list of Top Information Management and Storage Vendors of 2012. There is no doubt in our minds that the company’s Albireo technology has the potential to save organizations billions of dollars in infrastructure costs today and well into the future.”

“It is always gratifying to be recognized for the impact that a technology like Albireo can have on the marketplace in its ability to deliver the benefits of data optimization to enterprises worldwide,” said Tom Cook, Permabit CEO.  “This honor from Data Mobility Group in being named among the Top Information Management and Storage Vendors of the year is one of those gratifying moments.  We work hard to ensure that our technology core delivers on its promise of efficiency, scalability and capacity performance to improve the customer experience while lowering the total cost of ownership of data management.”

Albireo is delivered in two distinct product offerings. The Software Development Kit (SDK) version is a portable software library that hardware, software and service providers can utilize to expand their own solutions without impacting existing differentiating capabilities. The Virtual Data Optimizer (VDO) version is a complete, ready-to-run data efficiency application that is integrated with Linux.
