Albireo is on track to ship in more than 3,000 arrays in 2013. Permabit’s Albireo is the industry’s first purpose-built OEM deduplication, compression, and thin-provisioning software designed to meet the needs of hardware, software and service providers in the enterprise, cloud, flash, SAN, NAS and data protection markets. Permabit was chosen by its OEM customers because it provides industry-leading economic value to end-customers. “Our OEM partners have exceeded 1,000 arrays shipped with embedded Albireo software in 6-months,” said Tom Cook, CEO of Permabit. “As more of our partners come to market, we expect to surpass 3,000 units sold this year. Most importantly, we estimate that our partners have delivered an astonishing $300 million in data efficiency savings to their customers.” “With this major milestone, Permabit has proven that data efficiency is being deployed broadly today," said Ben Woo, Managing Director, Neuralytix.
