Permabit Supplies Data Efficiency for Sihua Tech’s All Flash Array Storage Solution
CAMBRIDGE, Mass – April 1, 2015 – Permabit Technology Corporation, the innovative leader in data efficiency technology, today announced that it is providing Albireo Virtual Data Optimizer (VDO) inline deduplication, compression and thin provisioning for Sihua Tech’s Kaixiang Flash Storage Array.
Sihua Tech is expanding its storage portfolio, based on the Neustor Scale Out HDD disk platform, with the introduction of the Kaixiang Flash Storage Array. The array comes in two different versions with either SAS or nVME connected SSD storage. By incorporating Permabit’s data efficiency technologies, Sihua Tech is able to quickly and easily offer its customers the most scalable, highest performing and resource-efficient inline deduplication, compression and thin provisioning in the industry. This allows Sihua Tech to provide an industry-leading all flash array solution to the Chinese market.
“The expansion of our storage portfolio with the addition of the Kaixiang Flash Storage Array allows us to deliver high performance enterprise-class storage to our customers,” said Yilang Sun, Chairman of Sihua Tech. “We made a careful comparison of data efficiency software offerings and realized Permabit’s VDO was a great fit for enhancing the capabilities of our storage products. By partnering with Permabit, we are able to provide flash storage at the most cost effective price, without sacrificing performance, allowing for broader adoption in primary storage applications.”
Albireo VDO is designed to embed directly into vendor-specific data management software, allowing it to scale with the capabilities of the underlying hardware and software of Sihua Tech’s Flash Storage Array. It dramatically improves native write performance by eliminating duplicate data, and utilizes fewer hardware resources than any other data efficiency solution available today. Albireo’s patented indexing technology is the most resource efficient solution in the industry, ensuring that performance and scalability do not come at the expense of massive amounts of RAM consumption.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Sihua Tech,” said Tom Cook, CEO of Permabit. “By embedding Albireo VDO into its all-flash storage, Sihua Tech is able to get to market quickly with must-have, industry-leading data efficiency capabilities.”
Permabit pioneers development of data efficiency technologies. Our innovative data deduplication, compression and thin provisioning products enable the world’s leading storage OEMs to cut effective cost, accelerate performance, reduce time to market and gain competitive advantage. Just as server virtualization revolutionized the economics of compute, our data reduction technologies are transforming storage economics, today.
