Xiotech and Permabit Partner to Deliver Advanced VDI Solutions

Xiotech Corporation, the leader in Intelligent Application Storage and Permabit Technology Corporation, the leader in the development and delivery of Data Optimized Storage, today announced a new long-term partnership to deliver cost-effective, performance-optimized storage for cloud and Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI).

Xiotech will unlock new levels of storage performance and efficiency by integrating Permabit’s Albireo technology, the industry’s first and only OEM embedded data optimization solution delivering high performance primary data deduplication, in Xiotech’s Intelligent Storage Element (ISE™) storage blades. Xiotech selected the Albireo solution based on the alignment of the strategic directions of both companies:

  • Performance and efficiency – Albireo provides the fastest data deduplication technology, critical to keep pace with the superior performance of Xiotech’s ISE.
  • VDI efficiency – Xiotech’s leading cost per virtual desktop will be taken to the next level when combined with Albireo’s enormously powerful deduplication of virtual desktops, greatly reducing storage requirements.
  • Maximum scalability – Albireo scales to multiple petabytes of storage capacity, meeting the requirements of the largest Xiotech customers.
  • Reliability – Xiotech’s carrier class storage blades deliver five nines of reliability. Albireo is the only dedupe technology for storage OEMs that can continue to deliver this level of reliability since it operates entirely outside of the read path; there is no negative impact on data reads. Albireo does not alter the data in any way, allowing for Xiotech storage systems to maintain full control of data integrity.

Albireo was created for hardware and software storage OEMs seeking to improve their competitive position and protect margin by expanding upon their solutions with next generation data optimization.

"Xiotech's ISE architecture is purpose built for cloud applications such as VDI, and Permabit's data optimization technologies are a perfect complement. Together, these two offer end users an attractive option to contain infrastructure costs and better predict performance.”~ Steve Duplessie, Founder and Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).
