Permabit SANblox Among Finalists for 2015 Products of the Year Award


CAMBRIDGE, Mass – January 12, 2016 – Permabit Technology Corporation, the recognized leader in data reduction technology, today announced that it is among nine finalists vying for the Storage magazine and’s 2015 Products of the Year competition in the data storage management tools category. The company was honored for its SANblox™ data reduction appliance.

Finalists were judged by a panel comprised of a cross-section of users, analysts, consultants and Storage magazine and editors. The products are rated according to their innovation, performance, ease of integration, ease of use, functionality and value. Results will be published in the February issue of Storage magazine and online.

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 across a wide range of applications, including virtual server, VDI, copy data, containers, databases (OLTP and data warehouse), analytics and Big Data environments.

SANblox can be deployed in a matter of hours to deliver immediate savings in any storage (all-flash, hybrid, or HDD) environment. With SANblox inline data reduction, savings are realized immediately, increasing the effective capacity and reducing the effective cost of storage. SANblox deployment flexibility also enables selective use of deduplication and/or compression on data stores, allowing users to choose the data reduction technique that best meet their needs or to bypass data reduction on workloads that won’t benefit.

“We are thrilled to be among the finalists for one of the industry’s most prestigious product of the year awards,” says Tom Cook, Permabit CEO. “TechTarget’s annual recognition of the top products in data storage is highly regarded among vendors, channel partners and customers alike and to have SANblox selected as a potential winner is a testament to the importance of implementing cutting-edge inline deduplication, compression and thin provisioning capabilities in all SAN deployments.”
