Permabit Presents on Data Reduction at IBM Edge2015

Also partners with Arrow Electronics to showcase plug-and-play inline data efficiency appliance with IBM storage technology

CAMBRIDGE, Mass – May 6, 2015 – Permabit Technology Corporation, the innovative leader in data efficiency technology, today announced that CEO Tom Cook will speak at IBM Edge May 13 at 12:30 the Murano 3205 Room at the Venetian in Las Vegas. The company will also display its SANblox data efficiency appliance, combined with IBM storage technology, in Arrow Electronics’ Booth #24, May 11-13.

A frequent speaker at industry and financial events, Cook will discuss how data reduction technologies are driving cost and capacity savings in the storage industry. Such technologies, which include inline deduplication, compression and thin provisioning, enable businesses to purchase high performance flash at an effective cost and capacity nearly comparable to disk.

“As storage budgets lag further and further behind the growth of data, companies must continue to look for ways of optimizing their storage investment,” said Cook. “By drastically reducing storage consumption, while massively improving capacity and performance, data efficiency technologies provide impressive financial returns on investment. I look forward to discussing with attendees at IBM Edge how our solutions pair with IBM FlashSystem technologies to help businesses grow and retain their competitive edge.”

Leveraging Permabit’s award-winning Albireo VDO, the SANblox data efficiency appliance integrates block-level data deduplication with IBM storage systems to enable customers to store their most critical data cost effectively on the highest-performing tiers of storage. The pre-certified appliance minimizes hurdles to installation with field-tested certification ensuring customers have the ideal solution for their specific business cases.

Edge2015 merges the IBM Edge and Enterprise events into the Infrastructure Innovation Conference of the year—the only U.S. event covering IBM System Storage, IBM z Systems, IBM Power Systems and IBM Middleware—all in a single venue. Business luminaries share best practices on leveraging IBM systems and middleware technologies to revolutionize how they use cloud, analytics and mobile to target new customers, create more revenue streams and provide the most secure foundation for their data, whether on site or in the cloud.
