Permabit Albireo Reduces Storage Volume Requirements, Improves Processing Efficiency in Data Protection Environments

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Permabit Technology Corporation, the recognized leader in storage efficiency technologies, today announced the release of its Albireo Data Optimization Software Data Protection Edition, developed to address the rampant data growth and enhance existing enterprise backup methods of businesses that have progressed beyond traditional backup technologies.


Permabit Albireo Data Protection Edition delivers a flexible and adaptable deduplication approach that can scale and perform at the levels needed for today's petabyte-scale data stores delivering performance and scalability that extends well beyond existing levels. Albireo combines industry leading I/O performance, multiple petabyte scalability and leading reduced memory requirements that make it an ideal choice in enhancing products that deliver deduplication capabilities today. Albireo for Data Protection is designed to enhance enterprise backup software as well as to differentiate more specialized solutions such as those optimized for backup of databases or virtual machines. With flexible deployment options, Albireo is easily integrated into stand-alone software, data protection appliances, or backup-to-cloud online service offerings.

Albireo is used to help businesses modernize their approach to data protection by adding new software solutions, appliances and cloud services that take their existing enterprise backup to the next level of performance and efficiency. OEMs that integrate Albireo SDK into their own offerings reduce the storage volume requirements and improve processing efficiency at the scale and performance levels needed for today's multi-petabyte data stores.

"Many organizations continue to re-architect their backup infrastructures and support procedures in an effort to modernize their approach to handle new data types and large workload volumes, and to improve backup and restore times. Deduplication technology is among one of the key items being sought," said Dave Russell, research vice president, Gartner.

Permabit's Albireo is the industry's first purpose-built OEM data deduplication software designed to meet the needs of hardware, software and service providers who wish to expand their existing solutions without negatively impacting existing differentiating capabilities and/or reducing overall performance. Albireo delivers deduplication that can be flexibly integrated into current or next-generation storage and platform architectures. Albireo deduplication is seamlessly deployed in primary, archive and backup storage across the data center and the cloud. With Albireo, OEMs leverage their existing R&D investments while accelerating time to market for must-have, industry leading data optimization capabilities.

"Data optimization is a 'must have' in the data protection market," said Tom Cook, CEO of Permabit. "We are helping OEMs add deduplication that delivers performance, resource utilization, I/O efficiency and scalability to their products."
