CAMBRIDGE, Mass., October 19, 2010 -- Permabit Technology Corporation, the leader in the development and delivery of Data Optimized Storage, today announced the next generation version of Albireo with new GX technology providing breakthrough performance and scalability for the industry’s first and only OEM embedded data optimization solution delivering real-time primary data deduplication.
In a test environment, Permabit Albireo sustained dedupe throughput at an industry leading rate of 77 GB/second (based on 64 KB chunk size and using hardware SHA-256 hashing) in a grid configuration. Albireo, with GX technology, incorporates patented indexing and memory resource utilization software. Albireo’s high performance scales linearly up to 10.2 PB without the performance drop off common with other data deduplication solutions.
Albireo was created for hardware and software storage OEMs seeking to improve their competitive position and improve margins with next generation data optimization. Permabit enables its partners to deploy sub-file deduplication technology with no impact to storage performance while ensuring data integrity. Albireo does not alter data and operates completely out of the data read path; a combination which is unique in the storage industry. Announced partners currently include NAS and block storage companies, such as BlueArc and Xiotech Corporation.
"The threshold Permabit has crossed for primary deduplication is unprecedented. With proven sustained performance of 77 GB/sec, ESG Lab has confirmed that Permabit’s grid-based embedded data deduplication architecture can be used to deliver storage solutions with virtually limitless deduplication performance scalability. ESG Lab has tested a number of other solutions in the market with impressive deduplication capabilities. The performance of those solutions often struggles to break the 1GB/sec performance barrier—especially when deployed within a primary storage solution with demanding performance requirements. The Albireo approach shatters that barrier with impressive performance that’s ideally suited to meet the needs of performance sensitive primary storage applications.” ~ Brian Garrett, Vice President ESG Lab, Enterprise Strategy Group
“Albireo was created to provide deduplication that scales to meet the workload requirements of the most demanding business critical environments without performance impact. Albireo, with GX technology, is effectively unlimited in its ability to scale upward. It handles any primary storage workload today and into the foreseeable future. Albireo puts our OEM customers way ahead in performance, scale and storage efficiency.” ~ Jered Floyd, Chief Technology Officer, Permabit.
