Dedupe-dedupe, dedupe-dedupe-dedupe: Flashy clients crowd around Permabit diamond

3 of the top six flash vendors are casing the OEM dedupe tech, claims analyst

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Putative OEM deduplication technology supplier Permabit could be about to land some clients, if a recent analyst's note is anything to go by.

Stifel Nicolaus analyst Aaron Rakers sent a note around about private talks with Permabit CEO Tom Cook and what's happening with its Albireo deduplication technology - background here. HDS-acquired BlueArc and X-IO were known in 2011 to have licensed it.

Rakers reports Cook as saying: "The company’s technology is currently being evaluated or utilised by three of the top six flash storage array vendors…". The analyst added: "The company also noted that it is being used/evaluated with systems at four of the top six traditional storage array vendors."

Pure Storage has its own deduplication technology. About to IPO, all-flash array start-up Violin Memory could also be a possible Permabit OEM client. The Cisco-acquired Whiptail, also lacking dedupe with its flash arrays, could be another.

Don't count on this though; false dawns abound in this area. ®
