ESG White Paper:
Permabit Albireo: Primary Data Deduplication
That’s Primarily About Massive Business Value
The Market and Opportunity
There is a major, growing, and well-known issue in IT—data growth is accelerating, and it is doing so at a rate that defies our budgetary ability to deal with it using standard methods and tools. And yet a technology that can address the issue is actually available today – data deduplication. While it is widely used today in backup and archive, there are enormous efficiencies that could be generated if we didn’t store lots of data in the first place….if we deduplicated primary data before it ever hit a spinning track or a solid state cell. It’s a ”light-bulb” moment – and when it takes hold it will forever change the economics of storage. Permabit’s Albireo product can do just that—flexibly, economically, without performance impact and for every tier of storage.
This need for a significant change—simultaneously addressing a huge industry challenge and presenting a great business opportunity—was discussed in depth in a recent ESG paper1. Permabit is clearly a company that understands the issue and its Albireo Data Optimization Software is a tool that can meet every market need – it scales, it is compact and resource efficient, it delivers superior deduplication rates and it actually improves storage performance. While reading the full paper gives the most complete understanding, some of the main arguments are noted here:
