Most deduplication solutions are resource intensive in terms of memory and CPU utilization. The culmination of over 10 years of research and development in data reduction technologies, the Albireo product line uniquely delivers extreme resource efficiency second to none in the storage industry.
Albireo SDK, the foundation of Permabit’s Albireo product line, is the only deduplication indexing technology able to index 10 TB of 4 KB blocks in as little as 256 GB of memory. Other common indexing techniques in use today require as much as 100 times the memory of the Albireo SDK.
Albireo VDO operates with DRAM requirements as low as 0.11 GB/TB while delivering deduplication, HIOPS Compression and fine-grained (4KB) thin provisioning functionality to a storage stack. Solutions built with VDO (including the Albireo SANblox appliance) are 13X-40X more memory efficient than solutions offered by Pure Storage. The compact Albireo footprint allows OEMs to deliver larger array sizes on low cost platforms.
Bottom Line Benefit:
- Add data reduction capabilities to existing SKUs without increasing Bill of Materials costs
- Deliver solutions that excel in effective cost, effective capacity and effective performance at a low price
