CAMBRIDGE, Mass – May 1, 2017 – Permabit Technology Corporation will show its Permabit Virtual Data Optimizer (VDO) with patented deduplication, HIOPS Compression®, and thin provisioning at Red Hat Summit 2017, held May 2-4 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Permabit will exhibit in the Storage Partner Showcase (Booth #206).

VDO is the only production-ready, modular data reduction solution for the Linux block storage stack. It is fully supported by Permabit on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and is compatible with Red Hat Ceph Storage and Red Hat Gluster Storage. As a ready-to-run kernel module for Linux, VDO works transparently with Linux block devices and file systems across all types of storage, as well as a broad range of open-source and commercial software solutions. This unique block-level approach enables Permabit customers to leverage existing file systems, volume management, and data protection,  as well as deliver 4 KB inline, high-performance data reduction to Linux storage environments both on-premises and in the cloud.

VDO is used by the world’s largest financial and communications companies and large government agencies. VDO data reduction delivers dramatically better data density for public/private/hybrid cloud storage, reducing storage capacity consumption and service demands while delivering IT infrastructure operating costs that are up to six times lower.

Red Hat Summit is the premier open-source technology event to showcase the latest and greatest in cloud computing, platform, virtualization, middleware, storage, and systems management technologies. Thousands of attendees gain insight into topics such as big data, mobile, storage, Internet of Things, security, and DevOps in training sessions, technology sessions, hands-on labs, presentations, and professional networking opportunities.
